Well, sorry for the long delay. I finally got the time and inclination 
at the same moment (July 4 holiday her in the U.S.) to pursue this for us.

When I rebooted my LFS, I also had no acpi/thermal entry. I had begun to 
suspect that would be the case.

Anyway, got that all right now and have attached a diff of my original 
.config and the new one. You will see some settings changed that have no 
effect - they should be obvious. Several are directly for my hardware 
and others for learning more about suspend, etc.

I have also attached a directory listing of /proc/acpi.

If you have not yet discarded your old system, maybe some useful 
information that will help maintain its usefulness can still be garnered.
