This simply means that win32api was not frozen.  The resulting
program will still run if you provide win32api.pyd.  Note that
you must also provide pywintypes1x.dll - this can not be frozen.

Freeze is capable of freezing these modules into the same .exe -
its needs the source to do so.

It shouldnt surprise you that freeze needs C sources - most of
freeze's time is spent compiling C code!

I'd suggest you ignore the error and simply ship win32api.pyd.
