Thanks. I've sort of solved the problem. I think maybe "make dep" or
something like that creates the file. I use make-kpkg which automates
all the above. It seems that make-kpkg doesn't work quite properly
when you only make the pcmcia-modules package. You have to first make
the kernel image package to get make-kpkg to work properly. Anyway,
I've done that and it's now working.
Thanks for your help.
