I opened a bugzilla bug (#10898) on the make oldconfig issue. Apparently this is a regression reported by Linus himself, and a patch is in the works. Make oldconfig worked fine for 2.6.24.x (as I mentioned in the bugzilla description).
As for the mount(8) CD/DVD issue, well, I'll test that later this afternoon... Time to go to work... I'm still not discounting the possibility that a funky config kernel build combined with my strange mix of hardware (see above--yes, that's all one PC!) might have caused this anomaly.
