It might be possible, yes, if you can get GCC (compiling for x86) and NASM on there, and a command shell. You wouldn't be able to run the resulting build on an ARM device, though, it needs PC hardware.

It would probably be easier to just use Ubuntu or CentOS, or any other Linux you prefer.

I think you probably shouldn't try to build using Android, unless you're confident that you know exactly what needs to be done to make it work. Otherwise, there's a good chance that you're wasting your time.

For example, a GCC running on an Android ARM device will build code for ARM by default. You would need one that can cross-compile for an x86 target.

Luckily, a PC or VM running Ubuntu, with GCC and NASM, is very well suited for building Visopsys. CentOS works too. All possible with free software.
