Just opkg install it. (I have my gllin package always on my SD card)
Rest should be taken care of by framreworkd.
Last time I checked, this worked with FSO and SHR.

But, as the flash space on GTA01 with SHR is extremely limited, you will 
not be able to install Navit. Which is a pitty.
You might even get trouble while installing gllin, best you deinstall 
some crap before since opkg fails very very ungracefully on full file 
You may need to re flash it to get it working again in when this happens.
