Good point, but there is no 'cross-compiling' involved here.
Suppose I have a package 'mypkg' installed on Mac OS X (to give it the
correct name). Then in a Terminal window
cd <directory above mypkg>
zip -r9X mypkg_ver.zip mypkg
where you need to set 'ver' to be the version number of the package,
read from mypkg/DESCRIPTION.
