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. https://packaging.python.org/key_projects/?highlight=setuptools#distutils
