First of all, I didn't modified any file so it seems that it was already downloaded with syntax error. I followed the instructions from here and here when preparing the building environment. When I run make -j8 I got the error:

In this merge-event-log-tags.py file, at line 51, it has:

try:
opts, args = getopt.getopt(sys.argv[1:], "ho:m:")
except getopt.GetoptError, err:
print str(err)
print __doc__
sys.exit(2)

Also, this is my first time posting here and also first time trying to build android so if you guys need more information to help troubleshoot this, please let me know

I've got this same problem trying to build 8.1.0. Did you (or anyone else) ever figure this out?
