I'm trying to install module of and getting this error:

make -s INSTALL_MOD_PATH=/tmp/modules-for- -j4 modules_install
make[1]: *** No rule to make target
`/tmp/modules-for-', needed by
`/home/fmoreau/linux/lib/firmware/atmsar11.fw'. Stop.
make[1]: *** Waiting for unfinished jobs....
make: *** [_modinst_post] Error 2

After googling a bit, some suggest that the issue is coming from a
recent version of make(1), mine is 3.82.

Does anybody encounter this already ?
