Possibly.  While it isn't my objective, anything that can use binutils 
and gcc configured for "arm-none-eabi" should be able to use them.

I'm using gcc-4.4.3 because I want recent improvements for ARM Cortex-M3 
microcontrollers.  Unless they've introduced a bug in code generation, I 
imagine that 4.4.3 should be fine for compiling stuff for Android.
