i'm sorry... what distro, kernel and gcc did you say you were running?

incidentally i just tried it myself on Slackware 9.1 (though more current than 9.1), with gcc 3.2.3 and linux 2.6.6, and i had no worries.

Don't recall the error message, but module-init-tools bombed out for me also with gcc 3.3.3 and a 2.6.9 kernel on lfs/blfs 5.1 . Dropped back to module-init-tools-3.0 which seems to work fine.

you have to edit make file after running the configure script.
remove "modprobe.conf.5" from the following line:

MAN5 = modeprobe.conf.5 modules.dep.5

After removing you can easily compile your application.

Hope this will work.

Have fun
