ECL is LGPL, which means I can't statically link against it without open sourcing my project (which I can't), but ecl-android generates a static library for it. Since there are so many files and generators, I don't even know where to start to change it to a shared library.

You are mistaken here - you can link with LGPL libraries without open sourcing your code.
This is exactly the difference between GPL and LGPL.
