Missing freeze.py in major linux distributions.

I am working on a couple of minor scripting projects which are required to be written in python but able to be run on a host either without python or an unknown version. After some searching it seemed freeze.py would be ideal however I couldn’t find it by default in two major Linux distributions (Redhat and Debian). ¬†For others in a similar predicament you need to install the python-examples package … problem solved.
