Added a comment to bug #120944 regarding this issue.  It is dup of
#121132.

You can create the file by doing a full rebuild of the kernel-source in
the directory.. then copying the file out to
the /lib/modules/-ver-/build directory.

I also changed my Makefile to stop 'make mrproper' from destroying
Modules.symvers as a short term workaround since my rebuilds of
livna.org nVIDIA kernel module RPMs require making a copy of the entire
source tree (and then it does a mrproper).  As commented by Arjan the
Makefile (for the module) is certainly broken, but we have to workaround
it.
