Yes, at least on Linux and Win32, if you are not expecting large increases
in performance as a result. This is done by "freezing" the bytecode files
and bundling them into a single executable, usually with the libraries
(.DLL or .so as appropriate) bundled but separate.
There are other approaches, but there's no point describing them until
you explain *why* you want to do this. What are your requirements?

Python has excellent facilities for embedding in applications written
in C/C++. Check the documentation for the relevant sections.
