Creating OS X Packages for *nix Programs

Create OS X .pkg files for easily installing custom-built *nix programs.

The "Trick"!!
When installing the Unix programs using make install, set a specific destination for the files. You'll then use that to build your OS X pkg. Example:

DESTDIR=/where/to/temporarily/put/the/stuff sudo make install

On OS X 10.6 (Snow Leopard), had to change the command a bit:

make install DESTDIR=/where/to/temporarily/put/the/stuff
