The easiest way to get nginx on android is to use install debian
in chroot with the stock android linux kernel. You will have working GCC
and no need to deal with cross-building.
The process is pretty straightforward and does not involve any magic.

As of build using android NDK, I'm almost sure you'll have to hack
a lot - at least libc(bionic) is not full and I have no idea how much
limited NDK is in terms of available calls.
