Default make-kpkg and kernel installation problems

I compile my kernel with the following options:

$ time fakeroot make-kpkg --append-to-version -rarqos --revision 01
kernel-image kernel-headers kernel-source

After I try to install it on a second machine I get the following error message:

rarqos:~# dpkg -i linux-image-
Selecting previously deselected package linux-image-
(Reading database ... 23171 files and directories currently installed.)
Unpacking linux-image- (from
linux-image- ...
Setting up linux-image- (01) ...

Hmm. There is a symbolic link /lib/modules/
However, I can not read it: No such file or directory
Therefore, I am deleting /lib/modules/

Hmm. The package shipped with a symbolic link
However, I can not read the target: No such file or directory
Therefore, I am deleting /lib/modules/

Running depmod.

I don't know where this links came from. I've deleted these links
before (on both machines) ... strange - how to get over that problem?
