Yes, please contact the Replicant folks for how to rebuild the Android SDK 
from source. (Last I checked, they didn't document the procedure either, but 
they should know how to do it because they ship a rebuilt SDK.) We cannot 
ship Google's binaries, both because of the license of the binaries and 
because Fedora does not ship upstream binaries by policy. We have to build 
the SDK from source code (which will land in the SRPM, so it needs to be 
free from non-Free or patent-encumbered (e.g. MP* codecs) code; any bad code 
needs to be ripped out from the tarball).
