I noticed that "python36" requires "binutils".

This is needed for ctypes.util.find_library().  FWIW, on Linux, not
only binutils is used, but also gcc.

Are you sure about that? It seems that function doesnt even work:

$ python3.6 -q
from ctypes.util import find_library
print(find_library('z'))
None
print(find_library('cygz'))
None
print(find_library('z.dll'))
None
print(find_library('cygz.dll'))
None

$ python3.7 -q
from ctypes.util import find_library
print(find_library('z'))
None
print(find_library('cygz'))
None
print(find_library('z.dll'))
None
print(find_library('cygz.dll'))
None

$ python3.8 -q
from ctypes.util import find_library
print(find_library('z'))
None
print(find_library('cygz'))
None
print(find_library('z.dll'))
None
print(find_library('cygz.dll'))
None
