I actually managed to use 7zip to extract python from the downloadable msi. It works.

This link gave me the way to do it: https://github.com/hobsonlane/pyexiv2/blob/master/cross-compile.sh

Thanks for looking to it anyway.

What would be the appropriate way to cross-compile a boost.python extension, preferably whith the use of cmake?
You need to cross-compile python itself first I guess, which is where 
the problem is - it is an ongoing effort 
(http://bugs.python.org/issue3754). Once you have cross-compiled 
python27.dll and headers installed properly in the cross-build env, you 
might be able to compile boost.python and the extension without big 
troubles, but I never got that far.
