This looks like it should have worked.

What version of Owl are you on?  What version of gcc?

If you try "make oldconfig" in place of "make menuconfig", does that work?

What's wrong about this?  I think you'd obtain this sort of output if
you exit from "make menuconfig" without saving changes - is this not
what you're doing?  Does the menu not appear?
