I aim to have Android support in Linaro GCC soon, but I lack the ability
to test it. In fact, I have wanted to have Android support in both
February's and March's release, but it isn't going to happen now.
I did build a Linaro GCC with the Android patches installed, and it did
appear to build a lot of the Android tree, but the Android build is
broken. There are problems with -Werror, but even when you work around
those, it still won't build. :(
When somebody gives me a properly patched Android tree, that will build
out-of-the-box with GCC 4.6, then I will be unblocked, and Linaro GCC
will have Android support shortly afterwards. :)
