IIUC, the error comes about because the compiler tries to optimise when
sin and cos are used within one line of each other.

If it is the compiler that is making the decision to use the sincos
functions I would have to recompile the compiler to support
-fno-builtin-sincos in order to turn it off.

However I don't know why -fno-builtin-sincos does not kick in during the
build. Is there a location in  configure where I can force it?

I might have screwed up the command but both with and without 
-fno-builtin-sincos  return the following:

-I/4.4/prebuilts/ndk/current/platforms/android-18/arch-arm/usr/include \

../testlm.c: In function 'main':
