I am using the following configuration to compile ffmepg on Fedora 27.

./configure --arch=arm --target-os=android --enable-cross-compile --cross-prefix=/Android/Sdk/ndk-bundle/toolchains/arm-linux-androideabi-4.9/prebuilt/linux-x86_64/bin/arm-linux-androideabi- --sysroot=/Android/Sdk/ndk-bundle/platforms/android-27/arch-arm --enable-gpl --cpu=cortex-a8 

When I run

I get the following error:

$ make
CC  libavdevice/alldevices.o
In file included from ./libavutil/avutil.h:296:0,
                 from ./libavutil/log.h:25,
                 from libavdevice/avdevice.h:48,
                 from libavdevice/alldevices.c:23:
./libavutil/common.h:33:19: fatal error: errno.h: No such file or directory
 #include <errno.h>
compilation terminated.
make: *** [ffbuild/common.mak:60: libavdevice/alldevices.o] Error 1

I tried symbolic linking /usr/include/asm-generic instead of /usr/include/asm but I still get the error.

Have you installed glibc-headers?

Are you using Fedora Arm? if not, the problem is obvious... I recommend you the use of a chroot... You can to use "mock (Using mock as a chroot sandbox tool)" shell, as chroot; or docker with a Fedora ARM image ... if the image is old, you can read the instructions about how to make a updated image...

Do you mean I should install Fedora Arm in a virtual machine and cross-compile ffmpeg there?

@powergame, exactly! but with "mock" you consumes low resources... You can find tips in arm package from Arch Arm...
