Something like this ...

1) sakis source :
tar xvf sakis3g-source.tar.bz2
2) usb-modeswitch, usb-modeswitch-data :

cd sakis3g-0.2.0e/ && mkdir dependencies && cd dependencies/
&& tar xvf usb-modeswitch-1.1.2.tar.bz2
&& tar xvf usb-modeswitch-data-20111023.tar.bz2
&& ln -s usb-modeswitch-1.1.2/ usb-modeswitch
&& ln -s usb-modeswitch-data-20111023/ usb-modeswitch-data
&& cd ../ && sh compile
