Bug#54514: base: depmod -a (2.3.9) fails if more than one kernel modules are on /lib/modules.

Package: base
Version: 20000109
Severity: important

-- System Information
Debian Release: potato
Kernel Version: Linux hugo 2.2.14 #5 SMP Fri Jan 7 00:03:50 CET 2000 i686 unknown

`apt-get upgrade' on Sun Jan  9 01:08:54 2000

1) dep-mod -a

  Scans all directories in /lib/modules, evan older and newer kernels,
  leading to lots of
    `depmod: *** Unresolved symbols in ...' 
  warnings and a broken 
    `/lib/modules/`uname -r`/modules.dep'

  This makes
  useless, more than that `modprobe' crashes in it.

2) dep-mode -a FORCED_VERSION

  Doesn't accept the FORCED_VERSION parameter as documented (same
  result as in 1). 

After a short look at the source, I feel that both problems are
related, so I combined both in this error report.

As I'm trying Debian's `bug' tool the first time, I don't know if
there is the chance to note:
