Kernel no option for agpgart build for Gentoo.

Need help on this. Working on a new custom kernel for Gentoo that I just installed. Downloaded and installed the newest kernel( and went to configure for my system. I've got a Broadcom AC131 chipset with Geforce 6100 GPU and AMD64X2. Well anyway theres no option for /dev/agpgart in the menuconfig and I cant find out what's keeping it from getting the option.. Normally IOMMU controls this option but it has no effect on it.. Is there a bug or am I missing something. The reason it's important is my FPS gain +700 for some reason when it complied as a module. I read that the --- /dev/agpgart means it's complied in the kernel but I would like to complie agpgart as a module to get the FPS as fast as my Slackware system.
