So the problem is not in Debian but in me. If I understand it correctly
now, the problem is, that I build the kernel on Sarge and install it on
Woody. So if I build the kernel on Woody, everything should be OK,
I guess. Sorry to make noise in debian-devel and bothering Keith. Thank
you for explaining the problem.

Are you sure? How can depmod generate correct modules.dep if it does not
understand the System.map file? If the modules.dep file is really correct,
I will continue building the kernels on Sarge and simply ignore the
warnings while installing it on Woody. :-)
