The simplest way is with "comp"
linuxcnc.org/docs/html/hal_comp.html
That can compile realtime component written in C as well as ones written in the "comp" preprocessing language.
You may need to install emc2-dev to get comp:
sudo apt-get install emc2-dev
Then navigate to /src/hal/drivers/mesa-hostmot2 and issue the command
sudo comp --install hostmot2.c (or whichever of the driver files you end up changing)

What changes do you wish to make? It might be easier to write a new component in comp, or the functionality might already be there in another way.
