In the old days that was the only way to build Python. I guess we were
just more curious back then. :-)
To the OP, as Thomas pointed out, you're going to have to identify all
the extension modules you need. You will then need to update
Modules/Setup to direct building those modules. The comment at the top
of that file tells you how to get a particular module to be statically
If you can run your application in an environment which supports
dynamically linked extension modules, you can probably get a good part
of the way there by running the application, then examining it at
runtime (e.g., with lsof on Linux) to see which shared modules have
