Things that stand out:
#device		scbus			# SCSI bus (required for ATA/SCSI)
The comment makes it pretty clear.
#device		da			# Direct Access (disks)
again kind of important.
#device		ppbus			# Parallel port bus (required)
This says required, so I'm not sure if disabling is the best solution. I don't know if there's code that relies on it, and once you have a working kernel it wouldn't be a bad idea to comment it to find out if it is actually required.

I'm confused what you're going for here. I initially thought it was a slim kernel, but you disable disks and then leave tons of ethernet cards to compile.

to the end it's the logs (sorry for that).
