I'm probably no help to resolving your problem, but have successfully upgraded
the alsa driver on Intrepid. That was version 1.0.18a from the alsa project
site, as below.
I did not use module assistant, but simply cd'd to the directory created when
the tarball was unpacked, and ran the usual, ./configure, make, then sudo
make install, and the alsa driver was upgraded with no problem.
As long as the headers are installed for the kernel your building against,
there should be no problems. Looking back in synaptic to see for extra needed
packages that I had installed, the main one was build-essential. A couple of
others are there, but may have been for something else, but the 2 packages
are, debhelper, and dpkg-dev.
I had a problem upgrading the alsa driver on Hardy's 2.6.24 kernel. and also
the Etchnhalf 2.6.24 kernel on my Debian Etch install. Still unresolved, but
as sound was working ok on both of these, and it was just an experiment to
see if there were problems upgrading the alsa driver on these kernels. I
havn't gotten around yet to finding out what the problem was, but make threw
in the towel a lot earlier than your make.
Are your sounds working ok on Jaunty. If so, were you just experimenting like
me to see if the latest alsa driver would build and install ok?
Which alsa driver is installed on your default install of Jaunty, as I don't
have it installed yet.
All the best.
