If I install Debian on a Linksys NSLU2 (see http://www.cyrius.com/debian/nslu2/ ) can I use the .deb packages provided by firefly’s sourceforge download page? I would tend to think that no, because of NSLU2’s ARM architecture, but then, I don’t really know too much about what stands behind these terms…

No, those are the “other-endian” debian packages. ARM can run in two modes — the mode that that page references (little-endian), and the debonaras mode (big-endian). The packages I provide are big-endian (as I’m running debonaras on my slug).

Assuming you can get debian testing running on the slug using the instructions referenced (and I imagine you can, since it’s a supported debian arch), then you can get the package that’s in debian proper, which is based on svn-1376 (by switching to testing and apt-get installing mt-daapd).
