When you start compiling your kernel with menuconfig, or xconfig you can find the Grsecurity / Pax settings under security -> grsecurity. It's advised to use the Arch build system (ABS) for compilation as it will produce packages which can be managed with pacman. Pacman is a realy nice package manager, if you learn how to use it you won't regret . This is the wiki page for pacman: https://wiki.archlinux.org/index.php/Pacman This is the Arch wiki page for ABS: https://wiki.archlinux.org/index.php/Arch_Build_System And this one is for compiling kernels with ABS: https://wiki.archlinux.org/index.php/Kernels/Arch_Build_System The documentation of Arch is realy the best you can find within the linux world, it's mostly up to date, and all the things you need are stated out very clearly. Good luck, and use DuckDuckGo or Google to find your answers.
