I looked at the page but didn't understand where/how to set
those parameters. Do they go in a configuration or Makefile 
somewhere?  I tried using 
setenv CONFIG_LOG 1

[The numbers were guessed at] 

All showed up in an env command, but the the resulting u-boot.bin
executable did not change size and behaves as before. 

Apologies if I'm being dense!
