Simply copy and paste, although it's not a perfect solution put this can be a temporary for now. Mainly based for Ubuntu systems but can be adapted very easily..

Make sure you have wget and unzip installed if not
apt-get install wget unzip

cd byond
make install

On a side note you might need some extra stuff especially if you are on a x64 bit architecture.
apt-get install lib32stdc++6
apt-get install ia32-libs

Simply run DreamDaemon -version to see the version you are on.

If things aren't working you should download these - perhaps install them to /usr/lib/ - As I have never had the below issue in a long time 5 -6 years I can't recall where to place them.

NOTE: Make install really only works if you have the correct permissions on the system otherwise it would just be a make here - If things aren't working
DreamDaemon: error while loading shared libraries: cannot open shared object file: No such file or directory

Install the libs above, obviously without permission you will have to ask the provider to do it for you.

That's it for now, it's not very difficult, if you need any help just reply.
