make PROG_EXTRA:=sensord user

Without a target explicitely handled to not build kernel dependency
files, these dependency files are built, but this doesn't work with 2.6
kernels, only 2.4 ones. Specifying "user" as the target solves the
problem. If you can fix the Makefile system to behave better, patches
are welcome :)
