2.1.73 screwups

I tried to go from 2.1.65 to 2.1.73, with a simultaneous upgrade to
modutils-2.1.71. This combination failed in the following ways:

(1) the first "make modules" silently fails to build sound_syms.o, though
a second "make modules" succeeds in building it.
(2) At bootup, "/lib/modules/2.1.73/misc/gus.o: unresolved symbols", but
this is likely because I didn't catch (1) above.
(3) Just after entering runlevel 3, I get:
Starting kerneld, version 2.1.71 (pid 30)
Ouch, no kerneld for message 2147418113
and it goes on to successfully(?) install the ne2000 module for eth0,
say it's trying to set up eth1 (but not do anything), then later
sendmail initialization hangs in the usual "can't find a nameserver,
too stupid to find my own hostname without waiting for one" manner,
which would indicate that ne.o and 8390.o didn't get insmodded after

Clues? Is it 2.1.73 or is it the new modutils, which work just fine
on my 2.1.65+vhand kernel?
