[pypy-dev] How to make a pypy distribution?

I want to make binaries to pypy and distribute but I don't know how.  
The biggest problem is that I didn't find were I can change the 2  
hardcoded sys.path entries (lib python and modified lib python). I  
would like it to look to a relative dir from where pypy-c is, or at  
least be able to hardcode it to something sensible (not my wc dir).  
Here is the scenario that I want to address:

A self contained pypy, with pypy-c in pypy/bin and libs in pypy/lib or  
maybe pypy/lib/pypy (so instead of on its on directory it can be  
easily moved to /usr/local for example).

I want to start to distribute a compiled version of pypy for macs  
(based on trunk). For people to have the biggest set of package to  
test on I am translating with this command line:

./translate.py --thread --stackless --gc=hybrid  
targetpypystandalone.py  --allworkingmodules

Do anyone think that there is a better set of options? (maybe -- 
gc=hybrid is not needed but I want to be sure never to try to use boehm)
