compiling python with unix

I would like to understand what python needs to work on unix.
And to understand how i can make it smalest possible?
I dont understand at all setup.

I searched in python.org and in sources but it is not clear at all for me.

Can python run with a posix C compiler and minix or something like that ?

Thanks

There are probably simple answers to your questions. It
might take a bit of conversation before we understand each
other's language.

Most Unix host nowadays install with Python already present.
Under MacOS and nearly all Linux distributions, for example,
I can type at the command line, and receive responses:
# python
Python 2.3 (#1, Sep 13 2003, 00:49:11)
[GCC 3.3 20030304 (Apple Computer, Inc. build 1495)] on darwin
Type "help", "copyright", "credits" or "license" for more information. >>> 3 + 8.5 11.5 >>> print("Hello, world.")

Hello, world.
Is that the sort of information you seek? If you prefer,
fr.comp.lang.python is also available as a Usenet newsgroup.

I used a lfs 4.0 to build my unix. But is is very fat. I can compile python
from there and play with "Hello World", but i dont uderstand how to choose
what i need and what i dont need to compile it and choose features that
python would be able to do.

For example, can i build python on a minix system?
Why socket module needs threads to compile ?

I search answers to this kind of questions.

Thanks.

I used a lfs 4.0 to build my unix. But is is very fat (250 M). I can compile
python
from there and play with "Hello World",
but i dont uderstand how to choose
what i need and what i dont need to compile python (library needed)
and how to choose features that python would be able to do
(for example if i dont inted to use some modules).

My questions are like :
For example, can i build python on a minix system?
Why socket module needs threads to compile ?

I search answers to this kind of questions.
You may right saying that it is possible that there is simple answers
and i may ununderstand some basic features of how system works
if so give me direction to search, because as i told i looked into python
site
for documentation about this and found nothing.

Thanks.
