What about Bitrock (http://bitrock.com/)? PostgreSQL uses it for their installer and it works on Mac, Linux (maybe also BSD), and Windows. Just a thought...

There is one reason why I'd vote against this - Bitrock charges for a commercial license

The way I look at it is, if Bo is spending time creating an installer, it should be available for a commercial binary. The one reason why I see a commercial binary might be useful to us at Monty Program, is when we have NRE customers on the Microsoft Windows platform. We'd want to provide them with an installer, and there's no point creating & maintaining 2 installers

Otherwise, Bitrock certainly does look good!
