For a start I'd like to create the bundle directory structure.

mkdir -p "$(FULL_PATH_TO_EXE).app/Contents/MacOS"
cp "$(FULL_PATH_TO_EXE)" "$(FULL_PATH_TO_EXE).app/Contents/MacOS"

That would create a minimal EXE.

What method should I pursue?

* Creating a top level rule called bundle?
- Probably necessary so's to specify other bundle resources.

* Hooking exe?

Thank you.
