I experienced exactly the same problems when I was running 2.5 kernels for
the first time. I think the problem is that the module-init-tools are
installed in /usr/local/sbin instead of /sbin. In /sbin are still the ol
dmodutils. When you simply run depmod, you will run the module-init-tools,
but in the linux-makefile /sbin/depmod is called. You could simply copy the
modutils to *.old (depmod -> depmod.old), and make symlinks/copys of the
module-init-tools in /sbin (or just make sure make isntall installs them
