>From the man page:
      depmod [-b basedir]  [-e]  [-F System.map]  [-n]  [-v]
[version]  [-A     ]

      depmod [-e]  [-FSystem.map]  [-n]  [-v]  [version]  [filename ...]

Man that's confusing argument placement.  Notice how [-v] [version]
are two separate arguments, not [-v version].  This implies that [-v]
has nothing to do with [version], and that Jurgen is right.
