[PythonCE] python port for embedded linux

Four or more years ago I cross compiled Python for an older ARM
processor (no mmap support), I statically linked with uclibc and
It worked and performed reasonably. I just used the base Python source.
The only problem I had was the Python's makefile tries to compile itself
twice, clearly that didn't work in a cross-compile situation but I
worked around it by changing the makefile.
I think I had posted some suggestions to python-dev list about how to
better support cross-compile development. I don't remember and I don't
know if they accepted my suggestions.
