I've never used Pyramid, but I assume you can follow the standard
procedure: uncompress the binary distro (possibly a tar.gz?) on your
laptop and chroot to it:
tar xvzf file.tar.gz
Inside the chroot jail you install the software you need (to compile
packages from sources you normally would install "build-essential").
Notice that it's not necessary to copy all this new data to destination,
it's enough to move and install the new DEBs on the Soekris card.
If you want to create a new tar.gz image from there recompress with tar
(remember to use the --numeric-owner option). There are also many ways
to copy from/to the Soekris without reinstalling: scp, rsync, nc...
