Let's not make the prefix longer, thanks.

I just put in the ENABLE_ replacement for CONFIG_, and left the old one so we 
wouldn't have change all the existing #ifdefs.  However, if the existing 
#ifdefs are horked...

If somebody wants to change all the existing #ifdef CONFIG_XXX to #if 
ENABLE_XXX (and submit a patch with _just_that_), it might be 1.1 material.  
(Ask Erik.)  It's easy enough to yank the CONFIG_ ones from bb_config.h to 
catch anything missing...
