You can't add side-by-side, since new lines must be added at the end of the
file (the makefiles keep track of which lines were run by index, not their
contents). But when that variable isn't set, it would try to remove
You could do something like:

ifdef HOST_OUT_release

But it was already incorrect to use $(HOST_OUT_release) here, $(HOST_OUT) will
be set properly for whether the current build that's being cleaned during
incrementals is using host debug or release builds (it was incredibly uncommon
to use a debug host build, there was never a shortcut to use that, you had to
set an environment variable manually, and it was rarely if ever tested).

I'll also note that the Android.mk files are not guaranteed to be compatible
between releases, even more so as we're switching away from Make.
