Have a look at : /lib/modules/2.6.12-1-powerpc/modules.dep

(or the equivalent for your arch), there we have a dependency list, each
module lists his dependency there, and this could be used as is for a non-udeb
single module distribution scheme, or used to build the dependencies tree.

Currently the modules are grouped per hand in .udebs, partly artificially,
partly because they belong to some wide group, and the dependencies are
handled by hand.
