It's probably more related to CLFS, since it's all about cross
compiling for ARM, but after all the Android sources come with a
prepackaged ARM cross compiler, and (if everything is fine) it should
be somewhat similar to running ./setup.sh. If you have build an LFS
system before, you probably won't find it too difficult to compile
Android. The official docs are pretty good too btw.
