It is best to take baby steps with something like this. It may be that in some situations modules are found via an OS mechanism rather than loaded via an explicit path. Some OS's may refuse to load a module unless it has been told about it in advance (e.g. for security reasons). Without the ldconfig the OS mechanism may fail. Man pages are pretty useless in a situation like this.
