Freezing python files into executables

I checked and ls /usr/lib64/python2.4/config/ returns
config.c config.c.in install-sh libpython2.4.a Makefile makesetup
python.o Setup Setup.config Setup.local

so I am guessing the python-devel installation went off OK, from what you say.

I looked at the freeze.py code and I see your point. But for tweaking,
I would need to know what modules should get included from lib64
instead of lib and hardcode them ....
Maybe tinkering around with the makefile which is produced by freeze
is a better way to go?

But since I need to freeze this python code by today, can you suggest
any other tool to do this?

Thanks.
