Python Compiler for Linux

I've heard of a Linux equivalent of py2exe called freeze, but that the only way to get it is to compile the Linux version of python from source. Is there a way to add this to python that was installed from the repos? I would like to keep my python installation from the repos b/c I don't have to worry about keeping up with updates that way, synaptic tells me when it has an update and that's it.

The reason I want to compile python files into Linux executable binaries is because sometimes I use libraries that do not come standard with python. One example is the graphics library I got accustomed to using because we went over it in my CS class as a frontend for tk. In this instance I would like to be able to compile the file so that it includes all of the information used, libraries and all(just like p2exe), so that I don't have to worry about packaging the non-default library with the application.

Just copy the python library to your project library. So your project consist of python library and your python code. Just make script to launch the project. Make sure you take care the path so your script can run your python code with python library inside your project directory.
