Ask someone else to compile it for you :)

Debian Jessie has only 4.2.10  (plus security fixes)  on all architectures, not 
just armhf.  Debian Stretch has 4.4.7 on all architectures including armhf, so 
it probably isn't anything intrinsically to do with the ARM architecture.  So 
you *might* be able to install the Stretch version.

If it depends on something else newer than Jessie, though, you probably are 
going to end up having to compile it yourself anyway .....
