KERNEL_VERSION = `uname -r`

MODULE_INSTALLDIR = /lib/modules/$(KERNEL_VERSION)/kernel/drivers/usb/media/
MODULE_INSTALLDIR2 = /lib/modules/$(KERNEL_VERSION)/kernel/drivers/media/video/


So you need to check:
1) That your running kernel is indeed installed as /lib/modules/`uname -r`
2) That /lib/modules/`uname -r`/build are a proper symlink to
your kernel source including the build files.

Try to do: ls /lib/modules/`uname -r`/build/scripts

If this is OK then add V=1 to make invocation liek this:
$(MAKE) -C $(KERNELDIR) SUBDIRS=$(PWD) CC=$(CC) V=1 modules

and send the full output.
