See the bottom blurb in particular --

* The SILK licensing, like the licensing for Polycom's Siren 7 G.722.1 and Siren 14 G.722.1C codecs, requires that the distribution of binary codec modules that can be used by Asterisk. To download the SILK codec module for Asterisk, browse to http://downloads.digium.com/pub/telephony/codec_silk/unsupported/asterisk-10.0/ and drop the untar'd .so file into /usr/lib/asterisk/modules and issue an Asterisk restart, or simply load the codec module from the Asterisk CLI

Actually, it seems that link provided is a little incorrect and the actual codec modules are available here:

These modules are actually compiled for Asterisk 10 rather than 11, but the architecture for codec translators remains largely unchanged, so I would guess it'll probably work. Probably.
