I can actually find these binaries by doing google search (and the binaries were clearly marked for OLPC usage) but I would rather be in the clear when it comes to licensing - are these licensed to OLPC so that they can be used in any OS that runs on the XOs, or are the license more restricted than that? (ie: no license at all, license per region, official OLPC OS only, etc, etc). If it is licensed freely, then is there an official location where I can get this binaries?
I don't know the licence part. But I know OLPC has a repository which
has ipp binaries from Marvell built for Android. And we do have asked a
permission from Marvell to let us put their binaries on a public server.
I don't know if it compatible with your software since Android has a
different C library implementation. See
