I build for Linux, but for Android I rely on Peter Bennett's builds. He 
doesn't build the Intel version of the APP. The Chromebook can run the 
32bit Arm apps, so thats what I use. I imagine many Apps are only 
distributed in Arm which is more common. I don't know if an Intel build 
would make much difference, one way or another the virtual machine is 
interpreting byte codes.
