Mmm, curious, my modules do. I've always found this weird.
Since it is a variable that is set in Makefile, perhaps you should call
make with MAN3EXT=3? I'm not sure if it will work, since the variable is
"reset" in the Makefile on line 69, as you've probable seen.
Testing... Seems to work. No warings.
I have this fixed locally, I can commit this to CVS if you want.
