That configuration is not explicitly supported in the build process.
Notice that the "Python libraries" are not entirely platform
independent. On Sparc64, the byte code files may be different
from the byte code files on Sparc, if the source code contains
integer literals above 2**31. Such literals would be marshaled
as TYPE_LONG (l) on Sparc32, but as TYPE_INT64 (I) on Sparc64.
