For Linux you should look at http://starship.python.net/crew/atuining/cx_Freeze/
This will create an executable with a number of library modules. This group of files can then be gzipped and distributed.
You cannot guarantee it will work in all cases as the package may still require access to some shared libraries that must be on the system. So it is likely it will still have some dependencies.
