Only if you enable CONFIG_MODVERSIONS and 'make dep' first. Drew is
quite correct that modversions.h is not in the kernel-source packages.

  [cjwatson@arborlon /usr/src/kernel-source-2.4.20]$ tar tjvf ../kernel-source-2.4.20.tar.bz2 | grep modversions
  [cjwatson@arborlon /usr/src/kernel-source-2.4.20]$

Search for 'update-modverfile' in Rules.make to find the script that
builds that file.
