Symbols in all Unresolved!!! Why?

I had followed (YES, I had followed them very carefully)the steps of installing a new kernel according to this kernel HOWTO, When I "make modules_install", first it shows many "INSTALLING xxxxx", and then there come out lot of error messages like "depmod: ... Unresolved symbols ....".

So I check the man page of depmod, and I put this command:
/sbin/depmod -F -e 1>dm.out 2>dm.err

and ls -l dm.*
it shows:
-rw-r--r-- 1 root root 240581 07-19 11:20 dm.err
-rw-r--r-- 1 root root 0 07-19 11:20 dm.out

Surprisingly, the size of the dm.out is 0 !!! WHY ?

And I open the dm.err, so much error: Unresolved symbol ....

a piece of the dm.err:
