Actually, I was asking if Pyinstaller should preferably be run whilst on a 
Linux Box or is it better on a Windows box?  

I have downloaded it and read parts of the manual.  I notice that the manual 
is out of sync with the file structure.  For example, it says

pyinstaller$ cd source/linux

but the downloaded zip archive's "source" directory does not have a "linux" 
subdirectory. Distracting...

Thanks again,
