I believe you know this patch is too cheesy to be accepted.

KCONFIG_WERROR is meant to turn all warnings
to errors.

I do not see getenv("KCONFIG_WERROR")
sprinkled everywhere in Kconfig.

One more thing, you cannot directly exit(1)
from sym_calc_value().

Curses programs (menuconfig / nconfig),
must call endwin() before exiting.

Otherwise, the terminal will not come back
to the canonical mode.

You do not need to fix it, though.
