It generally does work; the build dependencies for CPython 3.2 are the
same as for CPython 3.5, with maybe one or two new ones added for new
modules. So you can ask apt-get to grab you the deps for 3.2 and then
build 3.5 from source. That's what I usually do when I build from
source control - whether it's CPython or Pike or git or FFMpeg or
anything else, I can generally depend on the build deps for the old
version being good enough to build the new version. Even when they're
not exactly right, they're close enough that it saves a lot of time.
