Can OS X use apt-get? If there's an apt repository for OS X the main
part may be already solved. The second questions is how to create a
minimal system, where we can chroot into. Debian is using debootstrap
for this, but what is OS X using? For Suse, RH and fedora there's a
project called mach (http://thomas.apestaart.org/projects/mach/) which
can build a chroot.

If we can not install OS X packages with apt-get, we have to adjust
the script install_packages.
