There's a PR against Master for testing a build on Android armv7a,
aarch64, x86 and x86_64. Also see

The PR includes a which explains what is happening
with the Android tests. The PR shows you how to build Unbound for
Android using the current NDKs (ndk-r19, ndk-r20 and ndk-r21).
However, the PR stops short of running tests on an emulator or
creating an Android Activity.

Using Unbound from an Android Activity is basic JNI. The JNI gyrations
you would do for any other library (like Crypto++ or OpenSSL), you
would do for Unbound.
