Comment(by chris@…):

 The problem is that modprobe.d.5 doesn't specify the appropriate "man?"
 subdirectory - it needs to be '''.so man5/modprobe.conf.5'''. This has
 [http://permalink.gmane.org/gmane.linux.kernel.modules/475 already been
 reported upstream], but until it's fixed in a new module-init-tools
 release we can just do something like:

 {{{sed -i 's at modprobe@man5/&@' modprobe.d.5}}}

 or, since the whole file is just one line:

 {{{echo '.so man5/modprobe.conf.5' > modprobe.d.5}}}
