I presume it's too late to get my pull request in for 3.7, but perhaps we could get a note in the documentation for this before release?

That could be as simple as: 

    .. warning::
    
    The ``'spawn'`` and ``'forkserver'`` start methods cannot currently be used with "frozen" executables (i.e., binaries produced by packages like **PyInstaller** and **cx_Freeze**) on Unix. The ``'fork'`` start method does work.

I will make that into a PR if it seems like a good option.
