Another possibility is that py2exe is erroneously picking up *other* 
DLLs from the OS, which you are packaging and installing.  So check your 
distribution for *all* .dll files - most Python extension modules are 
.pyd, so the actual number of .dll files needed should be quite small 
and relatively stable across different py2exe invocations.
