I've installed Ubuntu Server for that purpose on one of my pi2 machines
and doing all builds there. The classic snap from the store (not sure
how far that is, but installing with snap install --devmode --edge
classic should work) would be another possible way to build on an arm
device as it gives you a full apt-get'able system on an all-snap one.
