2.1.111 (still) fails to build w/o console support.

Like the (at least) 2 previous kernel versions, v2.1.111 will not build if
console support is removed from the configuration. I am refering here to the
"VGA Text Console" option in the kernel config menu.

The error appears like this:

drivers/video/video.a: could not read symbols: Archive has no index; run
ranlib to add one
make: *** [vmlinux] Error 1

The kernel builds (and runs) without error if console support is retained and
all other options are unchanged.
