I've confirmed that the suggested steps works fine on Ubuntu 14.04 as well as 
16.04 versions

standard procedure for cross-compilation:
    * Configure the python source, for example update Modules/Setup.
    * Build python natively out of the source tree [1].
    * Set the new interpreter first on the PATH.
    * Cross-build python out of the same source tree, in another directory.

Thanks a lot for the support.

Could you please comment if we could add these instructions to the README file 
under the Build Instructions. I'll make a a small patch for updating the
