You are right about that. But I did compile MAME Android with the older tools. MAME Android wouldn't load up. I tried all of those. I tried the newer tools and it missing some stuff for the compiling. Unless I need to download the missing parts for the newer tools. I been told not to run the pacman commands on the newer tools. That might be why the compiling won't work right. I never again mess with the compiling after that.
