I also could not get it to work using the Docs.
The way i did it was

Get and install sourec code for Zaptel off Digiums site.
Install kernel source code for the kernel you are running.
Compile kernel/modules with ctc-ccitt in kernel.
compile zaptel.

then it worked.

If you have never done a kernel compile before this CAN be a huge problem. There is allot of information out there on how to do it but the learing curve is steep.
