I just fired up my VM that I use for android builds of mythfrontend. I have
not used it in a while so I did git pulls on both mythtv and packaging.  I
then checked out fixes/33.

libs built fine, but apk failed unrelated to bluray.

I followed the instructions originally to build my environment. from
I used the exact versions of everything on that page. I've learned not to
change anything.

But I don't know if those instructions are up to date.

If you just want mythfrontend for android 64bit or 32 bit for v33, there
are apks on orangedox
