The makefile was definately brief - not even a make install...

I got pretty much the same as you - it looks like the module does not have licensing (GPL) info with it.

Code Sample
# make
gcc -D -DMODULE -isystem /lib/modules/2.4.26/build/include -O2 -Wall -Wstrict-prototypes -fomit-frame-pointer    -c -o sis7019.o sis7019.c

# insmod sis7019
Using /lib/modules/2.4.26/kernel/drivers/sound/sis7019.o
/lib/modules/2.4.26/kernel/drivers/sound/sis7019.o: unresolved symbol ac97_probe_codec
Hint: You are trying to load a module without a GPL compatible license
     and it has unresolved symbols.  The module may be trying to access
     GPLONLY symbols but the problem is more likely to be a coding or
     user error.  Contact the module supplier for assistance, only they
     can help you.

# modprobe ac97_codec
# insmod sis7019
Using /lib/modules/2.4.26/kernel/drivers/sound/sis7019.o
Warning: loading /lib/modules/2.4.26/kernel/drivers/sound/sis7019.o will taint the kernel: no license
 See for information about tainted modules
/lib/modules/2.4.26/kernel/drivers/sound/sis7019.o: init_module: No such device [because I do not have a SiS card I guess...]
Hint: insmod errors can be caused by incorrect module parameters, including invalid IO or IRQ parameters.
     You may find more information in syslog or the output from dmesg

# modinfo sis7019
filename:    /lib/modules/2.4.26/kernel/drivers/sound/sis7019.o
description: "sis7019 Audio Driver"
author:      "SiS Software"
license:     <none>

One thing you could try is an ALSA driver - according to their website, there are drivers for SiS 7012 (intel8x0) and 7018 (trident) chipsets. Maybe one of these is compatible with your SiS 7019?
