I think depmod uses /lib/modules/`uname -r`/ as the modules dir. Perhaps
you are using your base system's uname. If this is right, you can look for
an option to give depmod the right path, make a soft link from 2.2.19-1k
to 2.4.7-pre6 inside /lib/modules, or replace temporarily your uname with
a fake uname script like this:

uname $* | sed s/2.2.19-1k/2.4.7-pre6/g
