That may be true for the standalone toolchain, but there's more than
one way to compile for Android. Have you ever tried compiling against
the NDK or from the full source release? You need an when you
do that. Unfortunately, I no longer do Android development so I can't
keep it up to date, but it worked fine for me up to a few months ago. I
think it's a great idea to point users to the INSTALL file from within for a more detailed discussion of the Android options.
