What build issues? As far as I'm aware, all three of those options are working fine for the vast majority of users.
This is the phonegap log error I'm getting...
This plugin is only applicable for versions of cordova-android greater than 4.0. If you have a previous platform version, you do *not* need this plugin since the whitelist will be built in.
Fetching plugin "cordova-plugin-wkwebview-engine" via npm
Installing "cordova-plugin-wkwebview-engine" at "1.1.4" for android
WARNING: Overriding compileSdkVersion from android-25 (default) to android-26
WARNING: This is unsupported, please consider updating your phonegap version instead
* What went wrong:
Execution failed for task ':compileReleaseJavaWithJavac'.
Compilation failed; see the compiler error output for details.
Will this same error show up on c3 builds as well?
