Well, I did get the make defconfig and make menuconfig to work, however, I now get an error during make. I removed all my previous files and directories in the gumstix-buildroot/build_arm_nofpu/root directory so that I'd have a clean build since I was previously working with a waysmall 200ax gumstix, but recently upgraded to the verdex xm4. I also updated my buildroot by issuing "svn update".

Here are the messages I recieve during the make process.

That did the job. Thanks a bunch.
rm .config && make defconfig
See if that works
