All you have tried seems appropriate.
Without confidence that it will  make any difference,
unload sound dirivers, then:
# modprobe snd-intel8x0m
#  slmodemd --alsa --country=NEW_ZEALAND modem:0

> alsa-lib-1.0.3a-2 gives me something close (libasound.so.2) and 
> alsa-lib-devel-1.0.3a-2 seems to provide all the headers etc.
