I did try and cross compile python and some modules once, a long time ago. It was a dishearteningly horrible experience to find out how badly patched together the python sources were. The build recipes were a very custom hack that didn't lend itself at all well to cross-compiling them.

I think I got something working, using alot of patches from the gentoo crossdev environment. However we didn't end up running python on the embedded board as it was too heavy. We needed every cycle for the c++ programs.

I don't know if they've updated the python sources with easier build tooling.
