Please first    Browse http://linmodems.technion.ac.il
   Download  http://linmodems.technion.ac.il/packages/scanModem.gz
   Within a Linux partition only:
$ gunzip scanModem.gz
   It might be necessary to make executable with:
$ chmod a+x scanModem
   before running diagnostics with:
$ ./scanModem
Thinkpads may contain either an Agere soft modem or a Lucent/Agere  DSP 
modem,
and the ltmodem drivers support Only the DSP modem type.
The scanModem diagnostic will distinguish between the two,
and output other useful information.

If yours is the DSP type there is a matching installer at 
http://ltmodem.heby.de
                ltmodem-kv_2.4.22_1.2115.nptl-8.26a9-1.i686.rpm

RE: serial-lt-2.4.c: In function `rs_close':
serial-lt-2.4.c:2995: error: invalid operands to binary ==
serial-lt-2.4.c: At top level:
serial-lt-2.4.c:2585: warning: `rs_break' defined but not used
make: *** [serial-lt-2.4.a] Error 1
  =======
This is a fedora related failure, I think.
The ltmodem-8.30a2.tar.gz just mounted at http://ltmodem.heby.de should 
eliminate it.
BUT, kernel-source must first be prepared followed the 
ModemDriverCompiling.txt output from scanModem.
