You do, of course, realize that you only have to do the build once
and then just copy the binary, right?
But consider, for example, ClamXav provides installer packages to
"secondary details" like creating the clamav user as needed. Again
If the executable in question only requires basic commands to be
reached so be
it, but there's always complications to be found.
Make your own installer package using the free Apple-provided tool.
If you need the install to accomplish something more than pushing out
the pre-compiled binary via Apple Remote Desktop.
The point of all this is, here is something with excellent
functionality that you may (or, may not !) desire.
ARD makes distribution as easy as it can get.
Keep in mind that many commercial products do not user Install(er)
Packages. Meaning you still have to install on a master/source
machine and distribute via ARD, unless you prefer hitting every one
of your many machines in-person.
