[R-SIG-Mac] Generating R .pkg file for Mac Distribution

Mac binaries on R are distributed as .pkg files available from CRAN
for installation.  Does anyone know if the source script (assuming a
script is used) that generates this pkg file is available anywhere?
The pkg seems to contain a few elements like a postflight/postinstall
script that I could not find in any open source repository and are not
part of the R binaries.

We have a few users who are dealing with the fortran compiler issues
on Mac, and were hoping to just modify the current .pkg to contain a
few more packages, was hoping to avoid reinventing the wheel on the
packaging scripts.

Thanks for any help,
