Do you specifically need an installer package?  Lots and lots of mac apps distribute as simple DMG's that contain an .app, with a shortcut to Applications.  Drag & Drop, Done.

I don't know how to create .pkg installers.  I know we spent some time looking at it, working on it, didn't reach a result that we liked, and we settled on using DropDMG to create DMG files which will prompt for license acceptance before showing the .app and shortcut to Applications.
