Hello, 

I recently tried this in combination with jhbuild, cross compiling with
mingw (to built some python gtk extensions). I tried you patch against
the 2.5.1 version and recieved the following error:

checking for /dev/ptmx... yes
checking for /dev/ptc... no
checking for %zd printf() format support... configure: error: cannot run
test program while cross compiling
See `config.log' for more details.
*** error during stage configure of python25: ########## Error running

I noticed that the other reference for cross compiling pthon 2.5 at
http://whatschrisdoing.com/blog/2006/10/06/howto-cross-compile-python-25/
