0023936: Improve packaging of OCCT releases on Mac OS X
As advised by several OCCT users, it would be nice to provide OCCT on Mac OS X in the form other than tar.gz archive with sources, to facilitate installation on the user's workstations.

Several (complimentary) options are suggested:

1. Providing OCCT binaries in dmg archive

2. Packing as Mac OS X Bundle or Framework (http://developer.apple.com/library/mac/#documentation/MacOSX/Conceptual/BPFrameworks/Frameworks.html [^])

3. CPack (http://www.cmake.org/cmake/help/v2.8.8/cpack.html [^]) can be used to build Mac OS X installer package

4. A formula for building OCCT can be added to Homebrew package manager (http://brew.sh [^])
