May I suggest an alternate plan of attack?

Limey linux has a C compiler built in. As long as ./configure passes for
socat, then you can compile it on the target machine, and install it in
/usr/local/sbin or /usr/local/bin. Do a svcfg to save the contents of
/usr/local/bin and /usr/local/sbin so it comes back across power cycles.

This will not work if your package requires things like perl, c++, tcl,
or python. There is only bare-bones development abilities available
(just enough to install Asterisk and Zaptel).
