Not pcmcia, that error is coming from modprobe. At a guess (and I have
to guess because you did not supply any data about your machine), you
are compiling on a kernel without modules. Something is invoking
modprobe while executing those commands, which is strange because
modprobe is not needed there.

Building the pcmcia directory is a temporary measure until everybody
upgrades to a recent pcmcia-cs. The worst it will do is build an empty
/lib/modules/2.4.0-test8/pcmcia directory.

Stick the commands below in a file then, as root,
strace -f -o modprobe.strace sh -x filename > 2>&1
mail me the modprobe.strace and output. Also include the
output from "sh scripts/ver_linux".

cd /lib/modules/2.4.0-test8;
mkdir -p pcmcia;
find kernel -path '*/pcmcia/*' -name '*.o' | xargs -i -r ln -sf ../{} pcmcia
if [ -r ]; then /sbin/depmod -ae -F 2.4.0-test8; fi
