Hello All,

Thank you:
First of all I want to say thank you all of you posters who have
already answered dozens of my questions as I have been learning Python
in my lurking & googling.  Now for the first time I am stumped:

Background:
The setup script seems to be working, the files are all copied over to
the right place in the dist, and an exe is even produced. (I have
included the setup script below anyways.

The problem:
The exe crashes immediately on startup.  Obviously it is failing to
find something - but what?  During the p2exe's running it reports the
following warning:
The following modules appear to be missing
['AppKit', 'Foundation', 'objc']

Others have had this problem too:
http://groups-beta.google.com/group/comp.lang.python/browse_frm/thread/97ff9e166e7e85a2/77dc1cb83c0baede?q=py2exe+pygame+solution&_done=%2Fgroups%3Fq%3Dpy2exe+pygame+solution%26hl%3Den%26lr%3D%26safe%3Doff%26sa%3DN%26tab%3Dwg%26&_doneTitle=Back+to+Search&&d#77dc1cb83c0baede
http://groups-beta.google.com/group/comp.lang.python/browse_frm/thread/3d1fb9aaccf82a3c/09d451bc1e0c2cde?q=pygame+py2exe+sarah&_done=%2Fgroups%3Fhl%3Den%26safe%3Doff%26q%3Dpygame+py2exe+sarah%26qt_s%3DSearch+Groups%26&_doneTitle=Back+to+Search&&d#09d451bc1e0c2cde

This guy says to ignore the warning above and instead include the font
(which I manually copied over, but it didn't help):
http://www.pick.ucam.org/~ptc24/pygame_py2exe.html
As well as 'other files' - which are???

I have also included the full output of py2exe below:

I would really, really appreciate someone setting me on the right track
to whatever is the current method for producing windows exe's for
python 2.3.4 and pygame!! Please.  This has to be a straightforward
lack of some include directive or some such.

Thank you very much,

I am using:

Here is my setup script:
#!/usr/bin/env python
from distutils.core import setup
import py2exe
import glob

setup(windows=["mahjong.py"],
name='GoPets Mahjong',
version='0.3.1',
description='Mahjong for GoPets Users',

)
