IP Masq question in pre-2.0.31-1

Just out of curiosity, why is the code that prints things like:

MASQ: forward ICMP: failed checksum from!
MASQ: forward ICMP: failed checksum from!

outside the ifdef's for CONFIG_IP_MASQUERADE_ICMP. i.e. I don't have
CONFIG_IP_MASQUERADE_ICMP set in this kernel though I do have
CONFIG_IP_MASQUERADE, yet am seeing the above on a multi-ether linux
router. Is there a good reason not obvious to me, or is it an oversight?

The system is not / has not been setup to actually use Masq yet...its just
in the kernel in case I decide to use it.
