this can be tricky to get right, on both counts.

I'd try using the Python.org binary and...

well, yes, that one.

That error sounds a bit familiar -- try deleting "build" and "dist", and 
making sure all traces of your hand-build PIL are gone, and try again.

Also make sure you're using the latest Py2app and modulegraph

For the record, with:
OS-X 10.4.11 PPC
python.org python2.5.2
PIL-1.1.6 from pythonmacorg/packages
Py2app '0.3.6'
modulegraph '0.7.1'

this simple script:

import sys
from PIL import Image, ImageFont, ImageDraw

for filename in sys.argv[1:]:
     print "Processing:", filename
     im = Image.open(filename)
     print "It is a %s, %s, %s image"%(im.format, im.size, im.mode)
     print "writing out a version with some text on it:"
     draw = ImageDraw.Draw(im)
     font = ImageFont.truetype("veraBd.ttf", 15)
     draw.text((10, 20), "WaterMark", font=font)

     outfilename = filename[:-3] + "watermarked.jpg"

and this setup.py:

from setuptools import setup

APP = ['SimplePILTest.py']
DATA_FILES = ["VeraBd.ttf"]
OPTIONS = {'argv_emulation': True}

     options={'py2app': OPTIONS},

py2app works fine for me.
