While we're making such macOS-build requests, any chance of building a
static interpreter too? We've been doing that on the Anaconda
Distribution since the 5.0 release in September and it seems to be
working well.

PyPy is also currently eyeing doing their macOS builds better: https://bitbucket.org/pypy/pypy/issues/2734/establish-a-build-and-release-pipeline-for

What do the Anaconda static builds get built on?

We have our own clang pseudo cross-compilers and use a macOS 10.9 SDK for all of our package compilation to achieve compatibility (this means we can compile on newer macOS just fine). We see a 1.1 to 1.2 times performance benefit over official releases as measured using 'python performance'.

Apart from a static interpreter we also enable LTO and PGO and only build for 64-bit so I'm not sure how much each bit continues. Our recipe for python 3.6 can be found at:
