For a mono link, search for "PLATFORM_ANDROID" and "mono" in google codesearch.
Now, I remember I successfully compiled GC on NDK 1.5r1 (but this was toolkit for windows development host which doesn't define __linux__ (which is tested by GC)).
Now, this is fixed and should work for any toolkit (I've tested with v1.6r1).

Discard this suggestion.

I'd been looking at that page right at the moment when received this letter.

Try the latest version from BDWGC CVS (I've added some workarounds for Android (some of them are as you sent to me).
1. To compile for Android you should use -DPLATFORM_ANDROID (you know this - just for clarity).
2. To build without dynamic libraries registering, use also -DIGNORE_DYNAMIC_LOADING.
3. Alternatively, to build with that support, get and include bionics clib linker headers.
If you would still experience linkage problems, send me the linkage command (that is passed to gcc).
