Chris Johns is the right person to answer this. He has experience in
fielded applications
using Python. He should be able to guide you. He was traveling yesterday
so may be
delayed in answering. Not sure how his internet access will be while he
is traveling.

His Python work predates the existence of the RTEMS Source Builder. Now,
we would
define a recipe for building Python in the RSB instead of having an
increasingly out of
date howto.

Ideally, the RSB would get a Python package added. Adding packages to
the RSB is
an on-going effort. Tcl and Lua are in a similar situation now.
