Okay, I've explored the sources you mention. I didn't understand all I read 
but it seemed this error is the result of missing dependencies. Seems strange 
that every module should have this problem, but ...

Anyway, I recompiled the kernel trying to be more careful. As a result, the 
problem seems to have gone away. Glad it's gone, just wish I had a better 
understanding of it exact nature.

Thanks for your help.
