Originally, no, I had run make oldconfig.  I did a rebuild with that and
got no errors.  Here is what my config files now contain:

$ grep -i autofs *86_64*.config
kernel-2.6.18-x86_64.config:# CONFIG_AUTOFS_FS is not set

$ ll *86_64*.config
63438 Jul  5 12:05 kernel-2.6.18-x86_64.config
64767 Jul  2 18:28 kernel-2.6.18-x86_64-kdump.config
65935 Jul  2 18:27 kernel-2.6.18-x86_64-xen.config

(Note that I only built the stock kernel, not the xen or dump kernels.)
