There is no official support for that, but you can try to play around.
 You can edit the file pypy/translator/goal/app_main.py: this file is
"pre-imported" at translation time.  So far the only global import is
"import sys".  But if you add more imports, the corresponding files
will also be pre-imported when you start "translate.py".  This means
that in this way you create a "pypy-c" binary that contains a frozen
live image of your modules, already present in sys.modules when you
start this particular "pypy-c" binary.  In this way you can distribute
a "bloated pypy-c" that can run without even looking for some or all
the .py or .pyc files.

A bientôt,
