Hi there!

The makefile in v4l-dvb/v4l does not install all modules when calling "make

2. Make.config decides which modules to use based on kernel-version variables 
(SUBLEVEL, PATCHLEVEL, ...) which are not set at this point.
3. Then makefile sources either file from kernel or .version to set version 

In some way point 3 has to be moved before point 1, but this could bring other
