There is a package sl-modem-source:
Description: SmartLink software modem driver - module building source
 This package contains source code for the low-level drivers for the
 software modems produced by Smart Link Ltd. It supports PCI and USB models.
 .
 In addition to this package, you will need the package sl-modem-daemon
 which implements the application part of the driver.
 .
 Module packages can be built for the custom kernel package either by hand or
 using DKMS.
--------
As you install it, the DKMS utility already on your System will
register its installation.
Subsequently during booting with upgrade kernels, compiling and
installation of ungrab-winmodem and slamr will be automated.
