Freeze size Question

When I compiled hello.py using freeze.py on my Solaris 2.6 machine it came out
being 1.5 megs! I then used strip to remove all of the symbols and it came to
about 511k which seems a bit more reasonable. Doesn't 1 megabyte of symbol
information seems a bit excessive? And compiling with out the '-g' switch only
cuts around 50k off the binary.

I'm trying to make the smallest, tightest, easiest binary to distribute, is
there anyway I can poke or prod freeze.py to succumb to my wishes?

Thanks,
Andrew.
