It seems you are trying to freeze a Tkinter program, which
is not really supported up to now.
Does your python script run from the command line correctly?

Even if your build would succeed, the resulting executable
would probably fail to run like this, because the executable
would not find the tcl/tk installation:

  Traceback (most recent call last):
    File "<string>", line 154, in ?
  File "<string>", line 146, in main
    File "<string>", line 31, in __init__
  File "Tkinter.pyc", line 1482, in __init__
  TclError: Can't find a usable init.tcl in the following directories:
      {} C:/sf/py2exe/tests/dist/lib/tcl8.3 C:/sf/py2exe/tests/dist/lib/tcl8.3 C:/sf/py2exe/tests/lib/
  tcl8.3 C:/sf/py2exe/tests/lib/tcl8.3/library C:/sf/py2exe/tests/library C:/sf/py2exe/tests/../tcl8.3
  /library C:/sf/py2exe/../tcl8.3/library

  This probably means that Tcl wasn't installed properly.
