My personal experience is that McMillan Installer is far superior to py2exe
in all the projects I tried (which are many), especially in resolving
dependencies. It is also much more rich feature wise. I never tried it on
Linux, though, but I can't see why it should behave worse. I am also
preparing a page which collects a few patches and suggestions about
Installer, you can find it here but it's still work in progress:
