Hi Hans,

I don't use the make release output (tgz) for the actual release, but  
just copy the binary from it and copy to another directory with an  
extra OSX readme.rtf in it.
I then make it a .dmg (diskimage) by hand, this format seems to be  
preferred standard for osx binary releases.

Since its manual labour, the question how to get the naming from darwin  
isn't too important for now. My idea is to just name the distro:
