Sorry for reviving such an old thread, but do you remember why you need
host-python3 or host-python ?

Indeed, this indicates that ninja supports both Python 2.x and Python
3.x, and Buildroot already guarantees that either Python 2.x or Python
3.x is available on the system, without the need to build host-python
or host-python3.

Therefore, why do we have this dependency ?
