Unfortunately I cannot do that, but I can tell you that the generated line in the .vcxproj file looks correct :


So now I am guessing the problem is in the glue that adds support of Android to the VS IDE?
Where is the code that translate a link library into the command line, such as "libfoo.a" to "-lfoo"?

It is likely specific to that (new) generator.

Please post the .vcxproj file that is generated for that.
