I thought there's nothing special about the android multi arch build in the sense that in the end it's just a bunch of differently named files being in the same install prefix (as opposed to iOS where there are fat archives), but i can't be sure because i didn't look into it.

So I don't really know atm if they can be merged or not.

I think that would be a new feature request, given we don't do it currently in qmake land.
