If something is missing, just go to l4/pkg and get the package with
'svn up name'. Or get the snapshot downloaded which has everything (the
same that is available via svn).

It depends on the device and how you want to use those. You mention
Android which likely means you want a screen and input driver
independent of any Linux. Usually those are not too big and writing
them is doable.
