.dmg files aren't created by the installer framework. They are packaged by 
tools that come with OS X.

Creating installers for a separate OS doesn't make sense. You need that other 
OS to test that it worked anyway, so you must have that OS. If you do, you may 
as well use it to create the installer. Besides, cross-compiling to OS X is 
not supported either, so you must have OS X to compile before you can think of
