Is that a proper analysis? Is "c++" indeed a cross compiler? If not,
you should investigate why configure thinks it is a cross compiler,
by inspecting config.log.

If yes: did you intend to build python using cross-compilation for a
different system? If yes: you are pretty much on your own. Cross
compilation is not really tested; although patches might be accepted.

If no: Is your C compiler also a cross compiler? If yes: Since you are
not cross-compiling, and since you don't have a native compiler, you
are out of luck; get a native compiler. If no: Try configuring
