Thanks Keith.

Alan, please don't apply the patch I sent with this subject line:

[PATCH] 2.4.20-pre5-ac4 Configure.help duplicate entry cleanup.

That patch removes the wrong set of texts according to Keith.

I'll generate another patch next release if I don't hear anything which
contradicts the above.
