Have you looked around on http://app-rpt.qrvc.com?

We don't support asterisk 1.6.x yet. In fact, we've had to fork asterisk
1.4 and oust our own sources because our changes have been next to
impossible to get into the asterisk main development source tree. This
may change in the future, but its hard  to say when. Our svn server
access is documented on our website at http://app-rpt.qrvc.com.

The USB fob requires zaptel ztdummy, libpri, and uses
chan_usbradio.c/xpmr as its driver. It also requires the alsa library
with alsa oss compatiblity add-on, and support in the kernel. I would
suggest you download and use our sources as we have  made some mods to
the asterisk core.

My suggestion would be to download ACID from dl.allstarlink.org and get
that running, then take a look at that as a model to get your
custom-built system going.
