acpid_1.0.6-15 exhibits the same issue and I confirmed that
/proc/modules does exist at that point in the script.  As a
workaround, I've attached a patch to /etc/init.d/acpid to get past the
modprobe when it fails.  It's a hack but at least it allows acpid to
start when there are no modules to load.  There's likely something
bigger at play here.
