Great! I will test now.

Just to know: Does this compiler contain all the fixes from multiple
bug reports including fixes for threading, dynamic library loading,

That would be counter-productive because my HTC Wildfire runs ARMv6 so
my application would stop working there.

ARMv5 Android devices are virtually inexistent. In my office we have
100+ devices and I am not aware of a single one which uses ARMv5. All
low-end devices are ARMv6

I never really tested -Cparmv5, only -Cparmv6 and with no options (so
default value), I just conected the points based on your assertion
that default=v5, but indeed maybe it is v4.
