No kmod on my system. Looks like collisions between the two packages.

c2stable ~ # eix -I kmod
No matches found.
c2stable ~ #

To me it looks safe to emerge -C kmod and then emerge
module-init-tools if you want to go that way. I'd do an equery files
kmod and carefully study what you're getting with that package, or
else push a bug request up to that package maintainer for providing a
modprobe that's not 100% compatible.

Good luck,
Mark
