Adding kernel config options?

I am wondering how one would add support for additional options in the 
kernel configuration files. I have found the config(8) program and the 
related files '/sys/conf/file' & '/sys/conf/options', but am having 
trouble finding any documentation leading me beyond there. When I 
specify something like 'MY_OPTION opt_myopt.h' in the options file, how 
does this tie into my code?

Any help or direction to where I can find further information would be 
greatly appreciated!
