Hi Owen

There is many way to build binaries of thuban. You can build it from
source but then it's a bit hard to have all the libraries if you want to
distribute it. That's why Thuban now use pyinstaller on Windows to have
a fully integrate executable.

Today there are binaries for some systems (w32, debian, ubuntu). But not
for MacOSX. 

I had a quick look at the things we can do on MacOSX and found py2app (
http://svn.pythonmac.org/py2app/py2app/trunk/doc/index.html ).

I have not tested it but i'm willing to do it ;-)
