Having just asked the man here who builds android we see no reason in
principle why it shouldn't work. Android can build for ARM and V5 so
should work with the emdebian toolchain defaults. It is normally only
tested with teh v4.4.0 compiler they ship pre-built, but you should be
able to drop the emdebian one in instead. It is possible that they
build with some funny paths that will cause breakage.
Principal hats: Linaro, Emdebian, Wookware, Balloonboard, ARM
