what does "depmod: *** Unresolved symbols" mean when compiling 2.4.25 kernel?


I received this error after after issuing the command make modules_install

depmod: *** Unresolved symbols in /lib/modules/2.4.25-AJS-PII/kernel/crypto/autoload.o
depmod: crypto_alg_lookup
depmod: *** Unresolved symbols in /lib/modules/2.4.25-AJS-PII/kernel/crypto/proc.o
depmod: crypto_alg_sem
depmod: crypto_alg_list


I am trying to compile the 2.4.25 kernel. This is the first time that I have tried to compile the kernel. I followed the instructions in the kernel README and I issued the commands in this order:

make mrproper
make clean
make xconfig (I imported Red Hats config file and turned off some things that I didn't need)
make dep
make bzImage
make modules
su
make modules_install

Did I do something wrong?
