Is it possible to manually install/build the make command on an android device. Before you suggest it, botbrew doesn't want to work for my Nexus 5 or TMO SGS4. Thanks in advanced!

Don't see why you need make. There's an apk here ( http://botbrew.com/). Don't know if this is possible, if you want to compile stuff why not cross-compile?

Not brew spews all kinds of errors and won't work. How would I cross compile the make command for my phone or utils and or packages in general??

What do you want to do? Build stuff? Do you have a bunch of makefiles you need running? I think that you'd still need a toolchain to build stuff, not just make.

My suggestion was to cross compile stuff on your PC that runs on your PHONE.

Exactly what I want to do. Build a program from source. A C program tarball. But yes I have make files and all that good stuff. I can easily build on my Linux box but not my phone.

How do I go about building a toolchain and cross compiling? Do you have any links handy?

I think the NDK is what I'm looking for. I hope it can cross compile lakes with make files, multiple c programs and shared object files.
