Please tell us more about that game.

Did you ever build Python before on a platform like, say, Linux?
You should if you are planning to deploy a decent game,
but you obviously have not, or you wouldn't have asked this question.

None. The Unix builds of Stackless that I have seen are static.

That's nice to hear. But your particular problem is by no means
related to Stackless yet, but the general question of how to
do some static build with some extension module for some platform.
That is an issue for the Python Main list or python-help (where you
can find me as well :-)

Which platform are you actually planning to use?
