I can have the same 'problem'.
I am currently developping a tool that uses other modules.
This tool I want to distribute to other people in my group which also 
use Linux but that don't have installed the modules.
Is it then possible to pach all libraries and modules and so on into one 
exec. and give this to someone else.
Or can I only do this when they have exactly the same Linux version.
Or is it only possible when they have installed the other progames 
containing the modules.
The modules I'm thinking of is for example wxPyhton and/or VTK.
