I have tried adding
and alternatively
To both my CMakeLists.txt and the toolchain file (One at a time) Neither 
have helped, is this what you meant? If it is can you send me a copy of 
your config files so i can look for differences. I am using the android 
toolchain file from the same location as Stephen.

  Can anyone point me in the right direction to building Qt with a 
SONAME in android, my knowledge of Qt's build system is even more 
limited then my knowledge of cmake.

PS sorry if i break email threading, i am only subscribed to the Digest 
for this list
