Sorry, but I now remember my Docker stuff.  You can build a VM with Ubuntu
20.04, but it is not necessary.

What I did almost worked.  Maybe I missed a step.

mkdir ~/build
cd ~/build
git clone mythtv packaging here
cd packaging and git checkout fixes/32
cd ~/build
git clone mythtv mythtv
cd mythtv  and git checkout fixes/32
cd ~/build/packaging/android/docker
Then ./start.sh
The builds the android studio environment and when it completes you are
dropped out to a bash shell in the docker container basically at

I then tried, make SDK-21 MODE=arm libs
This ran a really long time before it failed due to a compiler error
related to libbluray something or other.
Before I start posting logs somewhere, I thought I would check to see if
there is some dependency missing in the dockerfile related to the
libbluray. I know that library has created issues in building mythtv for
x86 and raspberry pi.
