most linux these days already have a python interpreter
installed so i think the simplest (simplistic) method
would be send the *.py or *.pyc file/s . 
( i follow this way when i give little apps to my friends )

i you want to ensure that the host machine has
python ( or the right relase of it ) you can write
a bash script that 
1) install python
2) install your program [this part can be done in python itself]
