[Libguestfs] Unable to build appliance

I've been trying to build libguestfs 1.2.14 with the appliance enabled on an
older type of system at my company.  Getting all the required dependencies
installed has been an arduous process, but I've finally hit an obstacle I
don't know how to get around.  The final output of "make":

+ febootstrap-run initramfs -- /sbin/depmod -a ABOUT-NLS BUGS COPYING

make[1]: *** [all-recursive] Error 1
make[1]: Leaving directory `/tmp/libguestfs-1.2.14'

/sbin/depmod does indeed exist.  I suppose that it doesn't exist inside the
chroot febootstrap-run is running in, but I couldn't imagine why not.

Can anyone offer any suggestions?  Thanks in advance for any help.
