What's so hard? It's a plain text error message.

So obviously (for people with at least two working brain cells, sorry could 
not resist), you need to include these too (or matplotlib will not work with 
py2exe, depending how it accesses these files I guess).

So google searches that I'd consider:

matplotlib py2exe
py2exe including datafiles
