I am having problems using the hsfmodem driver and the kernel patches from the 
Software Suspend 2 project: http://softwaresuspend.berlios.de/ . I can 
compile the driver but when I run hsfconfig there is an error, please see the 
last line in the snip below. I know you don't support patched kernels but I 
was hoping to get some idea of where to start looking. The modem driver works 
fine when the 2.6.7 kernel is patched for Win4Lin or using a vanilla 2.6.7

(this requires a C compiler and proper kernel sources to be installed)

Where is the linux source build directory that matches your running kernel?
