I'm not sure what you mean. I'm a novice. This is what I did:

1) Installed Debian, http://www.cyrius.com/debian/nslu2/install.html

2) Followed these instructions to install rtorrent (as root), 

apt-get install build-essential libsigc++-2.0-dev pkg-config comerr-dev libcurl3-openssl-dev 
libidn11-dev libkadm55 libkrb5-dev libssl-dev zlib1g-dev libncurses5 libncurses5-dev

wget http://libtorrent.rakshasa.no/downloads/libtorrent-0.11.4.tar.gz
tar -xvf libtorrent-0.11.4.tar.gz
cd libtorrent-0.11.4
sudo ./configure
sudo make && sudo make install

wget http://libtorrent.rakshasa.no/downloads/rtorrent-0.7.4.tar.gz
sudo tar xvf rtorrent-0.7.4.tar.gz
cd rtorrent-0.7.4
sudo ./configure
sudo make && sudo make install

Did I miss something? I'm not sure where to put the --enable-aligned flag.
