Using -mthumb-interwork on EABI toolchains is bogus.

I agree. I didn't like the -mandroid option to start with. Now that it's
needing its own multilib, I see no good reason for it. Create an actual
android configuration and use that.
I certainly object to building a multilib for android by default. There are
already a multitude of different options for which we don't build multilibs,
adding random OS variants to that is just going to end in a completely
unmanageable number of multilibs. Not to mention the fact that a normal arm-
eabi toochain will attempt to build newlib for all multilibs.
