I suggest tracking down the Makefile that is building the
unwanted feature and comment out the lines that build it.
It's not the cleanest solution, but it has worked for me.

I have successfully built both a zImage and zImage.initrd 
for kernel 2.2.5 for an RPX-Lite (MPC850) board on a PII-350 
station running RedHat 5.2.  I used binutils- and
egcs-1.1.2 cross-compiler.
