About linux : Building-an-embeddable-minimal-Python-distribution-on-Linux

Question Detail

Version 3.5.0 of Python introduced the embeddable distribution; a minimal Python distribution for Windows, meant to be bundled with other software that make use of Python in one way or another, e.g. via embedding. This enables precise control of what version of Python is used by the application that embeds it (which is vital in my case).

How can this be achieved in Linux? My guess is that I could just build Python from source, using make altinstall in order to build a standalone distribution to a specific directory, and then just bundle that directory with my application upon release. But is there a better way, e.g. a specific compilaton flag, to specifically to build a minimal distribution, i.e. the counterpart to the embeddable distribution for Windows?
