The -e option to depmod will tell you what it's missing.

Ok, there's you problem. The pcmcia modules should be compiled on the same
machine as the kernel you are running. Thus, if you install the kernel from
a package, the pcmcia modules should be from a package also.

So, you compile kernel source, install kernel+modules. Then compile pcmcia
modules and install them also. Reboot. Voila!
