Cross compile generation of .pyc from .py files...

Hi all,

We've managed to cross-compile (from i686 targeting ppc) python (2.4.2)
binaries and
extension modules.

However we cannot figure out how to cross-compile the .py (of
distribution) files and
generate the .pyc files for the target ppc from an i686 system.  Is it
possible to cross
compile .pyc files from .py files?

Some of the errors we get when we run 'python -v' on the target system
# /usr/lib/python2.4/site.pyc has bad magic
import site # from /usr/lib/python2.4/

# /usr/lib/python2.4/types.pyc has bad magic
import types # from /usr/lib/python2.4/
