I got it from the Makefile :
install_pci: install_check install_crypt install_hostap
@echo "Installing $(MODULE_PCI) to $(MODPATH_PCI)"
mkdir -p $(MODPATH_PCI)
cp -f $(MSRC)/$(MODULE_PCI) $(MODPATH_PCI)
I did not trust (yes, it looks funny now) that a simple "make" would
correctly deduce that it just needs to compile the PCI driver (for my
Netgear MA311) and had a foggy recollection from last year that the
target install_pci was right. Well, it was correct, but only after a
"make". It compiles now.

Thanks for putting up with the question.
