No, manually. Creating a disk image is possible using command line 
tools, but creating an installer package isn't for some reason. You 
have to use /Developer/Applications/Utilities/PackageMaker for that.

To create a disk image, either use Disk Utility or

hdiutil create -imagekey zlib-level=9 -format UDZO -srcfolder 
<srcfolder> <outputfile>
