This is a minor annoyance in at least 2.4.16 and 2.4.17-rc1 (don't know
about others).

If emu10k1 sound support is configured to be built and installed as a
module, make modules_install will yack like:

make[2]: Entering directory `/usr/src/linux-2.4.17-rc1/drivers/sound'
mkdir -p /lib/modules/2.4.17-rc1/kernel/drivers/sound/
cp soundcore.o ac97_codec.o ac97_codec.o
cp: will not overwrite just-created
`/lib/modules/2.4.17-rc1/kernel/drivers/sound/ac97_codec.o' with
make[2]: *** [_modinst__] Error 1
make[2]: Leaving directory `/usr/src/linux-2.4.17-rc1/drivers/sound'

Nuke line 75 in drivers/sound/Makefile .
