The distutils.sysconfig.get_python_inc() function finds headers relative to sys.base_prefix or sys.base_exec_prefix. This causes problems when cross-compiling extension modules because Python's headers are not platform independent.

Instead, get_python_inc() should use the INCLUDEPY and CONFINCLUDEPY variables from sysconfigdata to find headers. The _PYTHON_SYSCONFIGDATA_NAME environment variable can then be used to make build arch Python load sysconfigdata from host arch Python.

Distutils is now deprecated (see PEP 632) and all tagged issues are being closed. From now until removal, only release blocking issues will be considered for distutils.

If this issue does not relate to distutils, please remove the component and reopen it. If you believe it still requires a fix, most likely the issue should be re-reported at
