[Pkg-lirc-maint] Bug#404505: lirc-modules-source: dpkg-reconfigure installs module in wrong path

Package: lirc-modules-source
Severity: important


dpkg-reconfigure lirc-modules-source installs the builded kernel modules
in an path far away from kernel-module directory.

After build modules are installed in:
and not in /lib/modules/2.6.18-3-k7/misc

So depmod is useless and modules never found by modprobe etc.

Same result if building by hand with
debian/rules binary-modules KSRC=/usr/src/linux
The builded .deb Paket has in CONTENTS the same wrong path.

Maybe in rules the kernel path isn't stripped?
