It seems you have to first explicitely import the dbi module before the
odbc module can be imported.

import dbi, odbc

py2exe doesn't know that dbi.dll is a python extension - it is only
found as binary dependency.  And you should not (must not?) distribute
odbc32.dll, which is also copied to the dist folder.

In py2exe 0.5, you *should* be able to specify
   dll_exludes = ["odbc32.dll"]
but this doesn't seem to work.
