Problems trying to build android export templates

I have been trying to tackle this problem for a couple hours now and just cannot seem to figure out the issue.

I was able to build godot from source, the android release apk, and android debug apk yesterday without any really big issues. However something must have gone wrong in the apk builds because they would immediately crash when exported to my device.

I updated my sdk manager tools using Android Studio before trying to build the apk files again. When I went to run the files this time though I started getting the error below.

G:\Godot Source\source\godot 2.1.4>scons platform=android target=release

Any help with this issue would be appreciated. I may just end up starting fresh and trying again if I can’t solve this. I am sure I mucked something up while building/installing the tools.

Some extra info:

I am on Windows 10
Compiled godot 2.1.5

Did you find a solution to your problem?

I had this issue ( except I didn’t have that barf about alloca.h ). In my case I had set the path to the ndk wrong. Your probably didn’t make such a silly mistake.
