I think that it could be more work that it seems at first glance.
Yes, Android is VM platform and yes it runs linux at the bottom, but
AFAIK its native libs (libc for example) is not taken from gnu/linux
as they are.
I read that libc is BSD based and is tuned/modified/completely
rewritten (depending where you read it from) by google... what does
this mean, dont know now yet... I hope that it is not very different
from that what we know....
