When I compiled it I got these messages:

make[1]: Entering directory `/tmp/new/modutils-970320/depmod'
gcc -g -O -Wall -I../include -D_GNU_SOURCE -DELF_MACHINE_H='"elf_i386.h"' -c -o

misc.c:257: warning: suggest parentheses around assignment used as truth value

It seems that basename is ifdefed out in unistd.h from the libc 5.4.23 binary
distribution with a comment about it being "out of sync" with other gnu
packages. The function does exist in the library.

I have no idea what this all means.
