I apologize if this is a stupid question, but I am not very experienced building Python, or cross compiling.

While trying to cross compile Python 3.5.7 I can run configure, and make, but when I try to run 'make install' it throws the error posted below.  I was able to build with 3.5.1, but it appears that has been added since then.  I think a lot of my problem is not understanding what the 'make install' step is doing.  Is it using python that is install on my Ubuntu machine? Is it trying to do another build step? Any help would be greatly appreciated.

Could not import runpy module

Python 3.5 and 3.6 only get security fixes.  Please test on 3.7 or even better 3.8.  Your questions should be directed to python-list.

Closing as there has been no followup for over two years. Please create a new issue if you are still seeing an issue with a current (3.9+) version of Python.
