Ah, ok. This wiki page is correct. coreboot is separate from
flashrom, so being supported by one doesn't automatically mean being
supported by the other. Laptops are difficult for both projects.

T60 T60p are similar enough.

I think it gets upset because you want to flash coreboot. :)

Here are some instructions for a hardware that will work with
flashrom today: http://flashrom.org/FT2232SPI_Programmer
But you need to build a little yourself. Only very little.

I have an alternative approach in mind with a microcontroller board
but some firmware still needs to be written. :)
