You left out some devices that are required by other devices in your
configuration. for a start, it looks like "man 4 ral" would tell you
about a few of them for the ral device.
A better way to assemble a kernel configuration would be to start with
GENERIC and only change a few items at a time. That way, if it fails to
build, you have a narrower idea of where to look for the problem.
Or just stay with GENERIC; most consumer PCs have no real reason to need
a customized kernel.
