You will probably find that beryl requires *many* libraries that DSL does not have. I'll be terribly surprised if you succeed in compiling it, at this rate, before Beryl is replaced with a 4D virtual cyber smell-o-vision holodesktop.
Have you given any thought to trying the pre-compiled binary (Synaptic) route? You will still definitely need to deal with dependencies, but it should be a whole lot easier than compiling. I know I generally have nothing but good things to say about compiling from source, but something like Beryl, in a minimal distro like DSL, is most surely going to be a huge pain in the neck, particularly for someone who apparently has had little or no experience with compiling.
If you are "afraid of destroying everything", I personally would not even recommend trying Beryl on a harddrive-installed DSL (assuming that's what you're afraid of). You will be much safer experimenting on a liveCD or frugal system. If it succeeds you can then transfer the runtime files to a harddrive install.
I hope when you say "load" you don't mean "install" as in a *.tar.gz myDSL extension. That would be bad, potentially very bad.
