I can tell you that I've used py2exe to build quite a number of apps
that depended on many different pieces.  I have not experience with XLRD
but the other pieces you use work just fine.  Check on
for docs an wiki.  There is also a newsgroup at gmane.comp.python.py2exe
that you can submit questions to if you like.  I know that it is
monitored by Mark Hammond, Thomas Heller, and other users of py2exe
that can help you.
