Hmm things are quite complicated. Brief: the build is broken for out-of-source cross-compiling if the host Python is an in-source build.

(Below $build_dir refers to the directory that invokes $source_dir/configure)

In an out-of-source build, relies on sysconfig.get_config_var('srcdir') to get correct filenames. In _init_posix(), _get_sysconfigdata_name() still returns an incorrect name (for example, _sysconfigdata_m_linux_x86_64-linux-gnu, on Linux x86_64). There's no in $build_dir/build/lib.linux-aarch64-3.6, so $PYTHON_FOR_BUILD imports the one from the host python, which has srcdir == '.' As a result, build_ext can't find source files:

building 'xxlimited' extension

Ironically, before 1d71ce4531ac, $build_dir/build/lib.linux-aarch64-3.6 has, so building is OK.

Again, I don't know to fix it :(
