Default Unable to build custom kernel [Wrong configuration?]

I have been able to build other kernels, like when I enabled a high resolution console to fit my 1600x1200 monitor. This time, I wanted to enable the ULE scheduler. I also cut a lot of the unnecessary drivers out of my kernel. Now when building it, I get this error:

Here is my kernel configuration:

Sorry for the links, but it was too long to fit in this post.

My guess is that if I would remove the "makeoptions DEBUG=-g" line, then it would work, because it failed (line 6 on first link) at "linking kernel.debug".

Any help?

EDIT: Forgot to mention... just csup'ed my src tree, and am running 7.0-RELEASE-p3

ath* depends on wlan*. Either comment out the ath* lines and load it all via modules, or uncomment all the wlan* lines.

Same thing happened to me. I disabled 'wlan', but I forgot some USB wireless card, which obviously needed 'wlan'. It is silly to feel you wrong after an hour of kernel compilation... There should be a tool available for checking kernel configurations for that kind of mistakes.
