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 Android.mk 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.
