The DX50 and DX90 are actually unaffected by these proposed toolchain
changes, as they rely on the tooling provided by the Android NDK.
Coincidentally, several months ago I revamped the DX50/DX90 builds to
use a much newer (but still the oldest available) version of the Android
NDK, moving from gcc 4.6 to gcc 4.9 and turned on much higher levels of
So, if you could try using a recent-ish nightly build on your DX90, we
can confirm the tooling changes did not introduce any regressions.
There are also several DX90-related bugs in the tracker  that need
to be confirmed as still present or closed.
