failed to create 3dfx module package: epoch not a number

  I have compiled a kernel with --revision 99:jojda.2

  kernel compiled OK, kernal package
kernel-image-2.2.17_jojda.2_i386.deb (why is there no epoch in name?)

  I have 3dfx and alsa modules sources so I went on and did:

  make-kpkg modules_image (set MODULE_LOC first)

  it looks like alsa moduels where built correctly:

make[2]: Leaving directory `/usr/src/modules/alsa-driver'
make[1]: Leaving directory `/usr/src/modules/alsa-driver'
Module /usr/src/modules/alsa-driver processed fine

  and package was created: alsa-modules-2.2.17_0.5.9d-1+jojda.2_i386.deb

  however 3dfx module failed:

dh_builddeb --destdir=/usr/src/linux/..
dpkg-deb: parse error, in file `debian/tmp/DEBIAN/control' near line 2
package `device3dfx-module-2.2.17':
 error in Version string `2.3.4-2+99:jojda.2': epoch in version is not
dh_builddeb: command returned error code
make[1]: *** [kdist_image] Error 1
make[1]: Leaving directory `/usr/src/modules/device3dfx'
Module /usr/src/modules/device3dfx failed.
Hit return to Continue

  no package created.

  is it a problem of 3dfx package builder?

  strange thing I noticed (epoch is in different places!):

Package: alsa-modules-2.2.17
Version: 99:0.5.9d-1+jojda.2

Package: device3dfx-module-2.2.17
Version: 2.3.4-2+99:jojda.2

  system: debian unstable, kernel 2.2.17
