The MonoDevelop Mac app packaging command can create and sign a
standalone .app bundle even without the Application Tools. If you have
the Application tools then MD can create a .pkg installer package from
the .app, which is required for the App Store (though you can also
distribute the pkg directly).

If you don't have the Application Tools, you can use MD's packaging
command to create the .app, then distribute it as a zip file or as a
dmg, or use Apple's "PackageMaker" tool to create a .pkg.
