None If you want those modules, then turn off PCMCIA in your kernel

In general, you either build the kernel-tree PCMCIA support, or you
build the standalone PCMCIA modules.  The Configure script checks to
see if CONFIG_PCMCIA is turned on in your kernel; if it is, then it
will only build cardmgr and the other user tools.  If CONFIG_PCMCIA is
off, then it will build all the kernel modules.

The reason for this is that there may be version skew between the
PCMCIA stuff in the kernel tree, and what is in the separate package.
If the kernel PCMCIA is on, then cardmgr etc are built against the
kernel PCMCIA headers, not the headers included in the PCMCIA
package.  Building the modules, when you've also built stuff into the
kernel, is messy: we don't want to build stuff that conflicts.

1. Ok Cool, perhaps that could be made more clear in the HOWTO? by Peter, 2000, Jul 30
