These are old config options that were removed, so it doesn't matter. Probably if you saved the config and rerun make menuconfig, you should'nt get them anymore.
Why are you compiling as root? Bad habbit.. If the makefile goes wrong or you have setup a link that points out of the kernel source, you will loose data, as root has super power.
You only need root account to INSTALL the compiled software, as /boot or /bin etc.. are only writable by root.
If it's because /usr/src is also only writtable by root, then change permissions of /usr/src and compile as user.
Or just compile somewhere else, like in $HOME/linux
