Ah, that makes more sense.

Alas, while there has been some support for various cross-compiling scenarios 
added to cPython itself, including targeting for Android, for the most part 
they are not well-documented if at all and are not regularly tested as part of 
our release process. Further, while Distutils has been a part of the cPython 
standard library for many years, it is now deprecated for building modules not 
in the standard library. The PyPA recommends using setuptools instead of 
Distutils, in general, and there are other build tools out there. How well each 
of them support cross-compiling would be a good thing to research and ask.
