./configure should work, if you have the appropriate environment 
variables (CC, AS, LD, etc.) set up to point at your Android NDK. 
Personally I've only built them for Android inside Firefox, which uses 
its own build system, and only compiles the decoders (though I've built 
and tested the encoders on more normal ARM Linux systems, where they 
work fine).

Android is a giant PITA, in general, but see 
https://wiki.mozilla.org/Mobile/Fennec/Android for instructions on using 
gdb/gdbserver with it.
