The Linux kernel doesn't provide ACPI support for all motherboards.
Most that I've tried it on, with the exception of laptops, don't show
anything. Try lm_sensors in Slackware 11.0:

lm_sensors: and fans of Linux systems with hardware monitoring devices. Included

i have compiled 2.6.18 and included acpi as modules
are you sure that by including them staticly they
would produce different functionality ? it doesn't make sense .
i will try to compile like you siad but it is most
likely that kerenel acpi simply doesn't support my GA-7n400s-l
when i had EP-8khal+ i could read /proc/acpi/thermal_zone/...
without problems , and it showed same temperature as bios
