Why don't you just pass BR2_KERNEL_CONFIG_METHOD in your own environment?
No need for extra variables and all this other stuff.

Sorry Ulf, I don't think you are being reasonable. The default needs to
be the same everywhere - it doesn't make any sense to have a mix of
menuconfig and xconfig interfaces.
The current logic of trying xconfig then menuconfig is very ugly - does
it allow you to abort xconfig without falling back?
I use X and I never use xconfig.
