Install no-ip on embedded linux

I have a bitcoin miner, Spondoolies SP30
which uses embedded linux, does not include a compiler (gcc), only has basic commands from busybox.
I am trying to install no-ip DDNS service for remote administration purposes. They don't officially support messing with their OS, but they sent me some instructions on installing a development environment on ubuntu.
These steps according to them would be as follows:
(from )

prebuilt steps:
sudo apt-get update
sudo apt-get install git build-essential
sudo apt-get install autoconf
sudo apt-get install unzip
sudo apt-get install libtool
sudo apt-get install whois
sudo apt-get install pkg-config
sudo apt-get install ncurses-dev
sudo apt-get install libssl-dev
create working folders
mkdir workspace
cd workspace
get spoondolies package setup
git clone
download entire solution
cd sp30-top
make get
install toolchain
cd /opt
tar xf /home/ubuntu/workspace/sp30-top/toolchain/arm2013.05-CodeSourcery.tar.xz
cd -
add path to binaries in .bashrc
echo "export PATH=/opt/arm-2013.05/bin/:$PATH" >> ~/.bashrc
. ~/.bashrc
init projects configuration
make init
build binaries
make build
prepare uImage spondoolies.dtb
make deploy
What would be the next steps to install no-ip to my machine?

Did all those steps work? Seems like you got it built and installed, that would be the culmination where you completed the "make deploy".

And ... half understanding - half not.

This is a data miner? Intended to do what? Search person's activities online so you can target them for advertisements and such? Or something else?

And you're trying to set it up so that it has anonymity so basically people can't locate you and complain at a specific level, or mine backwards at you?

Or what exactly is the application case?

Yes all these steps seem to have worked.
Looks to me that I have to somehow cross-compile no-ip.

This is not a data miner, but a bitcoin miner.

I found a workaround to use tell no-ip the machine's IP address, I set a cron job using curl to

However, I am still trying to figure out how to use the dev environment I built for my machine.
Any help appreciated
