    Tricky.

    It's wrong of the Red Hat package to misidentify itself in this manner.

    It would sort-of make sense for `depmod -V' to autodetect the kernel
    version and print either "modutils" or "module-init-utils". But that's not
    accurate either: a `make modules_install' would fail when performed under a
    2.4 kernel.

    So yes, I think that your patch to RH modutils+module-init-tools is the best
    approach: after all, it tells the truth.

    Meanwhile, I'll alter Valdis's patch so that it warns, but does not fail
    the make.
