If that's not exactly what you need, have a look at the Comparisons page on the Anyterm website, which lists numerous other remote-access technologies. If you have Apache and PHP installed you might like to try AjaxTerm.
I have cross-compiled the Anyterm stand-alone daemon for OpenDebianSlug in the past, and the runes to do this are included. Last time I tried, however, I found that OpenDebianSlug's vesion of Boost is too old. This can probably be fixed, but I wouldn't suggest trying to compile anything that uses Boost natively.
Good luck. Do mail me directly, or ask on the Anyterm forum, if you have any questions.
