New submission from Chi Hsuan Yen:

As said by Stefan Krah in http://bugs.python.org/issue23496#msg236886, Android ports can use pure python decimal module. Of course I can, but _decimal is always built and error messages are spamming. This change allow disabling _decimal from ./configure.

For the complete build process, have a look into scripts and patches from https://github.com/yan12125/python3-android.
