Asterisk includes a script that installs prerequisites for common
distros in contrib/scripts/install_prereq. It does support Debian,
although I personally haven't run it on a Raspberry Pi B.

"It doesn't work for me" is not sufficient for someone to help you. You
need to provide what the error output is.

If the error output is "We could not install init scripts for your
operating system", then Raspberry Pi B's distro is not supported by the
'make config' target. If that's the case, you will need to modify the
Makefile to recognize the distro and install appropriately; you can
probably use the stock Debian installation as a guide.
