 This is good work. Thanks!

 Here are a few quick comments:
 - the main ticket for integrating the android build into tor-browser-build
 is not #25164 but #26693. This one is only for the reproducible part of it
 (checking that multiple builds on multiple machines create the same
 - In the commit subject you should use `Bug XXXX:` (even if the ticket is
 of type `enhancement`).
 - to make it easier to review, you should split the commits in different
 commits. I think one for adding stretch to debootstrap-image, for adding
 android-toolchain, for adding the new platform definition to rbm.conf, for
 fixing the rust build, for fixing the firefox build.
 - should we call the target in rbm.conf `torbrowser-android-armv7` instead
 of just `torbrowser-android`?
 - `var/compiler` should be set to `android-toolchain` instead of `gcc`.
 - `ndk.zip` should be included in `android-toolchain` so that is not
 needed to download it from `projects/firefox/config`.
