You could write a small, fake module importing the stuff that the
library needs.  If you then run py2exe with the -k (--keep-temp) option,
it doesn't delete its own build tree. You will find there a xxx.zip
file, containing all the modules needed (plus a few scripts which you
can ignore). If you use Python 2.3, just add the zip-file's name to
sys.path, and you are done.
