I'm interested.  The clang that Apple ships can target ARM and the GNU 
runtimes, so you should be able to target android without a custom compiler, 
although you will need a copy of Android binutils for linking, along with the 
Android headers.

With the latest NDK, there is even the possibility of running -gui.  There's a 
Skia back end for Cairo, so it should be possible to port the drawing part with 
minimal effort, although the event handling and window management code will 
need writing.
