I've confirmed that the suggested steps works fine on Ubuntu 14.04 as well as
standard procedure for cross-compilation:
* Configure the python source, for example update Modules/Setup.
* Build python natively out of the source tree .
* 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
