Sometimes.  It depends on what you have changed of the kernel's
configuration.  When building the PCMCIA modules, the pcmcia-cs
Configure script checks the kernel for the following:

 * PCI BIOS support
 * Advanced Power Management (APM) support
 * SCSI support
 * Networking support
 * Module version checking
 * PCMCIA IDE device support
 * Token Ring device support
 * DEC Alpha UDB target platform

Yes.  It sounds like you have changed enough of the kernel's
configuration to require rebuilding of the pcmcia modules.  See the
debian/README file in the Debian version of the pcmcia-cs source tree
for instructions on how to recompile the modules package.
