/proc/config.gz is not directly connected with a specific linux
distribution; it's a function of the kernel build configuration. If
the appropriate setting is enabled, then /proc/config.gz will show
(via eg. zcat) the equivalent of the .config file used to build the
kernel you are actually running. It's a useful feature in all linuces,
going back quite a way IIRC.
