I'd rather do it as a custom job myself, thanks.  That will allow 
adding and removing of individual files after installation.

Also, I need to be able to access data files and stuff.

Also, I'm going to have one 'base' package that when installed, will 
run all my games.  I don't wanna distribute the same stuff with every 
game, seeing as the games are quite small individually.

So I'd prefer help compiling the interpreter myself, and figuring out 
some way of setting paths at run-time.

Thanks,
