If the board you've selected does not have any meaningful functions in
embed_config.c, yes, it probably would.  If this is a custom board, or
something not otherwise supported by the standard kernel, it sounds like
some other parts of your 2.4 code, under arch/ppc/boot/ have not been
ported over yet.
