This is out-of-topic for this list. Buildroot is an embedded Linux
build system, which produces a traditional Linux userspace, with a
traditional C library, Busybox, etc. Android has a completely custom
userspace, with a specific C library (Bionic), a specific
reimplementation of Busybox (Toolbox). This list is not the appropriate
place to ask about how to compile iptables for an ARM Android device.

Hint when working with the open-source community: never say you need
something urgently. It will just make people go away and never answer
your question.
