2.x,3.x iOS static build: Fatal Python error: exceptionsbootstrapping error.




I'm trying to embed a part of python (core+some modules) in my iOS application for internal scripting. I started from compiling original unmodified Python source. Tried both 2.7.3 and 3.x latest source code. As I found no easy way to configure it, just tried to run configure from Mac OS X(10.7) and it was successful.
After that I created XCode project and added all necessary files from after-configure source. There were some minor problems, but compilation and linkerrors were fixed very quickly.
Finally I tried to create a test program, which has just this:
When I run it I getting "Fatal Python error: exceptions bootstrapping error.."
Call stack is:

XCode version is 4.3.2.
I tried to debug, and unfortunately I don't understand why this error is occured.
Also tried source from here: http://stackoverflow.com/a/4177748/1337666.
But no luck, same problem.
Porting Python core will be very helpful for my iOS application.
Any hint will be appreciated.
Best Regards
