Yes of course, I successfuly built and installed nmap, wget, so I
thought there was something in the python configure process.

If didn't investigate everything but I solved the problem by adding
the "-static-libgcc" option:

CFLAGS="-w -static-intel -static-libgcc"

I think one should commit changes so configure can manage this. I can
I want to help for further diagnosis or improvement. Also it seems
-Wall will be deprecated, and usually we use -w:

       -w<n>  Control diagnostics, where <n> is one of the following:

                 0 -- Display errors (same as -w)

                 1 -- Display warnings and errors (default)

                 2 -- Display remarks, warnings, and errors
