config problems with pcmcia and parport

`make xconfig` spits out this error message after I'm done configuring

ERROR - Attempting to write value for unconfigured variable

Here's part of my .config file. Note that CONFIG_PARPORT_PC_PCMCIA is
nowhere to be found in .config, not even commented out. The "Parallel
port support" configuration screen displays the entry "Support for
PCMCIA management for PC-style ports" twice, and the first of the two
entries is tri-state, but not greyed out. None of the three options can
be selected though. The second one is greyed out.


Anybody else seeing this problem?
