I guess it's me. :)

I have, using kernel-package, successfully compiled modules for an existing
kernel, from sources in /usr/src/modules. I didn't set any special
variables, I just used fakeroot and make-kpkg.

I don't see how one could possibly compile modules without write privileges
to /usr/src/modules.

Maybe I'm just doing a depleted uranium imitation today.
