Then get a Raspberry Pi.  I use a Raspberry Pi to compile code for a 
PocketBeagle, which also lacks a build infrastructor (also for a BBB).  
Raspberry Pis are very cheap (US$35) and work well as build boxen.  Of course 
you could try to set up a cross-build environment.  It is just going to be 
easier to set up a Raspberry Pi with the proper build toolchain.
