Do you want to package a source tarball? For that there's almost no
work needed -- I've adjusted the script used for
Rockbox Utility to do that for the binaries of the Theme Editor I
provide. It's basically just editing the application name and source
files needed at the top of the script. However, since I want to avoid
having two copies of the script around that only differ in some
variables set at the beginning I still want to rework that script into
a module and haven't committed my current version yet. I'll try to
look into that again tonight.

If you consider packages, have you thought about version numbers?
Right now the binary doesn't have a way to tell about its version, a
simple About dialog that shows a version number and license would be a
good thing IMO.
