No. It should be enough to have run "make modules_prepare".

For me, it works with:

make -C <path to kernel src> SUBDIRS=<path to module source> modules
# Builds
make -C <path to kernel src> SUBDIRS=<path to module source> modules_install
# Installs

Besides, IMHO this belongs in Documentation/kbuild/modules.txt.
