Since pre-pkg was not necessary incurrently supported OSes, since one would use 
MacPorts to install pspp rather than an installer, I did not commit it.

When building installers, you cannot use the same prefix as MacPorts or they 
will collide (user may have macports or eventually have macports).

Relocation never entered the picture for me. Just as building for multiple OSes 
felt futile as MacPorts could not do so either.
