That's certainly where I'd expect to find it if I built my own kernel.
There's no guarantee that that's the same configuration as the kernel
that's actually being run at the time, of course (which was what the
/proc idea was for).

What do you do if you've got a kernel binary package?  Do Red Hat's
kernel image packages also provide /usr/src/linux/.config?
