[CentOS] depmod madness

What can I do when attempting to run depmod with these options:

-Ae -b base -F System.map

to prevent depmod from appending the following path:


to the specified base? I am specifying a base as:

-b ./lib/modules/

So depmod errors/fails with: FATAL: Could not open

btw, '/lib/modules/2.6.18-53.1.14.el5' belongs to the native system that
is running on my host

Why is depmod using that "system" path?

Thank you.
