Has there been any consideration to distributing binary bootstrap kits 
in the target platforms native package format?  For example MacOS .pkg 
or Red Hat/Fedora Core's rpm?

I do realize that just extracting the kit at / is very easy.  However it 
just goes that little bit more to allow pkgsrc tools to be installed 
almost without thought or instructions.
