I have a i.MX51 (arm) based system. Sharp PC-Z1 and I am
trying to get a USB Dongle WIFI working.
(The internal one died)

The usb stick is a RT2870 device and the system does have
/lib/firmware/rt2870.bin

It also has /usr/src/linux-headers-2.6.28-15-araneo/drivers/staging/rt2870

Makefile and Kconfig

but that is all. no rt2870sta.ko etc

Is it possible I have enough on the system to complete the generation of the needed file to enable this device?

It's Ubuntu 9.04

Well I took the driver from the chipset manufacturer and compiled it.
The Netwalker not surprisingly has gcc and full linux headers installed on it.

I have gotten the device to install and after discovering that the USB ID of my device was missing from the source
(added USB_DEVICE() to a table)

it is now seen and comes up as ethernet device ra0

the network manager does not see it, so I may need to configure it by hand.
Which would really stink when I change access points.
