Bug#487154: toshset claims to need kernel module, man page says otherwise

Package: toshset
Version: 1.73-2
Severity: important

I installed Debian Lenny with beta 2 installer on a Toshiba Portege 
R500. toshset is installed, when I run it I get:

required kernel toshiba support not enabled.

The manpage explicitly says no special module is required. It's not 
clear what config option would produce it. I have subsequently 
recompiled the kernel using a patch from noodles to enable bluetooth 
support, but I'd like backlight support and so on if possible.

I see the package is non-maintained, so maybe this is a dead end?
