The C compiler they used is too new for the resulting binary to work on
older versions of Android.

Emacs is not like other programs, where one binary can run on any number
of systems.  You should build Emacs for an API level reasonably close to
what you will install it on, and with the right C compiler for that.

Otherwise, you will get gnulib substitutes for several system functions,
which may not be what you want.
