You're looking for IASL? To find it, go to
http://www.acpica.org/downloads/unix_source_code.php and accept the
license agrement there to get the latest source code for IASL and a
few other useful apps.

To compile it, run these commands:

cd compiler &&
make &&
cd ../tools/acpisrc &&
make &&
cd ../acpixtract &&
make &&
cd ../acpiexec &&
make &&
cd ../../

Then, as the root user:

install -m755 -v compiler/iasl /usr/bin &&
install -m755 -v

And now you have IASL and some other useful apps.
