Yes, that's configure, so.. ;)

That is not unexpected, nobody is claiming that it would be possible to build LibreOffice even partially successfully for Andoid (or for any kind of cross-compilation) yet. Sooner or later you will run into an error, that needs to be handled, and so on. That is what it means that this is a work in progress and extremely experimental.

Well, I doubt completely cross-compiling is not possible anyway
unless you wrap the commands which check the current system (like in sal)
to use whatever wrapper emulating the environment/ABI (qemu?)

Can one get nfs or some remote fs on a rooted phone/tablet? And/or a
real big(tm) SD card? Then one could compile on the target hardware,
can't one?....
