resources to shrink, in which case the original APK will be used
instead of the shrinked one (nondeterministic behavior of Gradle

size significantly.
### NDK _build-id_
On different build machines different NDK paths and different paths to the
project (and thus to its _jni_ directory) are used. This leads to different
paths to the source files in debug symbols, causing linker to generate
different _build-id_, which is preserved after stripping.
One possible solution is adding `LOCAL_LDFLAGS += -Wl,--build-id=none` to
_Android.mk_ files which will disable _build-id_ generation completely.
