Which distribution are you using?  I believe unstable's make-kpkg has
some support for building kernel modules given
kernel-headers-2.4.18-1-686 and lm-sensors-source, but I haven't
actually tried this.  Let's see...otherwise, bug 189513 points at
which suggests doing this:

  cd /usr/src
  tar xzf lm-sensors.tar.gz
  cd modules/lm-sensors
  fakeroot debian/rules kdist_image \
    KSRC=/usr/src/kernel-headers-2.4.18-1-686 \
    KVERS=2.4.18-686 KDREV=2.4.18-4

which should, given write permission in /usr/src, generate module
packages for you as if you had run 'make-kpkg modules-image'.

If you're tracking unstable, lm-sensors and i2c 2.8.0 have both been
uploaded, but are awaiting approval; the uploaded packages include
prebuilt modules for kernel 2.4.21-4.  I should rebuild these for
2.4.21-5 and repeat.
