That's probably because backtrace() is not Linux but GNU, and Android is Linux but not GNU.  It uses its own "Bionic" libc, for example.  I'll bet backtrace() works fine on Debian GNU/kFreeBSD, which is also not Linux but is GNU.  So those who think "GNU/Linux" is just marketing aren't paying attention to the details :)
