It handles a lot of the mess of getting cross-compiled libraries working (like ncurses, libnl & libpcap). The problem with not using NDK directly and building via the source tree is that everything needs it's own file..

You mean not using the android system builder. Yeah, it's a pain, but expecting people to roll their own rom isn't really reasonable, either. The immaturity of the whole android build process/tool chain has really slowed down my interest in trying to get it ported, plus distributing something which requires root just makes me really twitchy.

I don't know if I have it handy still but I'll look; it was for an older version.
