Thanks. I gave that a try & here's the output:

make -C /lib/modules/ M=$(pwd)
make: Entering directory `/sources/linux-'
Building modules, stage 2.
MODPOST 0 modules
make: Leaving directory `/sources/linux-'

To be honest, I don't have a clue what it means.

Because I am working on the host system (in the chroot environment) the 
$(uname -r) gave the wrong result so I substituted hard code for it as 
shown above.
