I haven't finished yet, but I'm going to bed now. Here's a couple  
mkdir ${BuildDir) has a closing bracket instead of brace.
Typo in tar -xzf pkconfig.tgz (missing the g in pkg).
The mv lines (like "mv pkg* pkgconfig") won't work properly because  
the .tgz files are still there, and are matched by the glob.

I also think it'd be good to make it clear that these are dylibs, not  
frameworks, and that they're made to be packaged inside a .app. It  
doesn't specifically claim that they are frameworks, but it makes it  
sound like they are (in my opinion).

Other than that it looks pretty good, and it's definitely a nice thing  
to have!
