    You can remove the modules. Do lsmod |grep lp and when you get a hit, no
    need to recompile

    Try to get the .config file for your running kernel. The Distributor should
    have, and e.g. with suse, it's in /proc/config.gz.

    Use the well known tools (make config, make xconfig) and change only options
    you need( and understand)
