The GNU Guix project is providing binary substitutes for Lilypond for
four systems (armhf, mips64el, i686, x86_64).  We are building the
latest unstable release on, and you can take a look at the
latest build for armhf here:

Installation only requires

    guix package -i lilypond

Building it locally is possible by disabling binary substitutes:

    guix build --no-substitutes lilypond

For a development environment containing all dependencies to build
Lilypond you could run:

    guix environment lilypond

This creates a sub-shell in which all dependencies are available.

As Guix can be used on top of another distribution, this probably also
works on the BeagleBone Black running Debian.
