Looking at this. It would appear that the uhd program is provided by ettus, however they only provide it for ubuntu and fedora, not angstrom. This means that you will have to build it from source.

The page you linked recommended using PyBombs to build it from source, but I'm not familiar with this program or how to use it to cross-compile for arm linux. http://files.ettus.com/manual/page_build_guide.html#build_pybombs

I was able to find a possible yocto recipe for it here: https://github.com/dirtybit/gumstix-yocto/tree/master/meta-openembedded/meta-oe/recipes-connectivity/uhd. So you might have some luck using yocto to build it or dissecting the recipes and cross compiling yourself.

I don't think anyone here has had any experience with the ettus devices. It may be worth asking them how to go about cross-compiling their programs for ARMv5 platforms.
