You can push files to the SD Card at /sdcard, for example:
adb push moose.dat /sdcard/moose.dat

You can see the complete command line that ndk-build is using by passing V=1 on the command line:
ndk-build V=1

If your application crashes in native code, you can use addr2line to convert the addresses in the stack trace to lines in your code.

For example, if your crash looks like this:
I/DEBUG ( 31): signal 11 (SIGSEGV), code 2 (SEGV_ACCERR), fault addr 400085d0
I/DEBUG ( 31): r0 00000000 r1 00001000 r2 00000003 r3 400085d4
I/DEBUG ( 31): r4 400085d0 r5 40008000 r6 afd41504 r7 436c6a7c
I/DEBUG ( 31): r8 436c6b30 r9 435c6fb0 10 435c6f9c fp 4168d82c
I/DEBUG ( 31): ip 8346aff0 sp 436c6a60 lr afd1c8ff pc afd1c902 cpsr 60000030
I/DEBUG ( 31): #00 pc 0001c902 /system/lib/libc.so

I/DEBUG ( 31): #02 pc 000014bc /data/data/org.libsdl.app/lib/libmain.so
I/DEBUG ( 31): #03 pc 00001506 /data/data/org.libsdl.app/lib/libmain.so

You can see that there's a crash in the C library being called from the main code. I run addr2line with the debug version of my code:
arm-eabi-addr2line -C -f -e obj/local/armeabi/libmain.so
and then paste in the number after "pc" in the call stack, from the line that I care about:
000014bc

I get output from addr2line showing that it's in the quit function, in testspriteminimal.c, on line 23.

You can add logging to your code to help show what's happening:

#include <android/log.h>

__android_log_print(ANDROID_LOG_INFO, "foo", "Something happened! x = %d", x);
