I can't find context, but:

-- make-kpkg modules-image looks for directories in /usr/src/modules,
   and tries to build a third-party module from each of them;

-- make-kpkg modules does the same, but also GPG-signs the result;

-- you don't need to do either if you've just selected modules in the
   kernel configuration, since those modules wind up in the normal
   kernel-image package.

It sounds like what's going on is that, at some point, you installed
i2c-source and unpacked /usr/src/i2c.tar.gz, and now 'make-kpkg
modules-image' is going off and building that.  That's the expected
behavior.  If you don't want i2c or anything else in /usr/src, you're
probably done.

(ObUnstable: if you're running unstable, and trying to build i2c
modules, you really really don't want i2c enabled in the kernel, at
