So you don't want to build GEM from source, but rather incorporate it 
into the packaging system?  How are you doing this now with the 
binary?  I know very little about .pkg building at this point, but 
I'm guessing the OSX installer is a meta-package and all the 
externals are packages inside it?  Is there any reason why 
PackageMaker can't be used to build the installer?

One note about the GEM builds: you will have to figure out a way to 
distribute all three builds for each processor type.  The G4 or G5 
build cannot be run on G3 CPUs or GEM will crash will illegal 
instruction exceptions.
