How to build a Mac OS X Installer Package from these files?
Already tried many ways: pkgbuild, productbuild, PackageMaker, Packages application...
The structure of the flat package that I want to build:
Distribution - xml script MacBookPro2011EFIUpdate.pkg - flat package Resources - resources folder, contains language localizations
productbuild error: Cannot copy package "MacBookPro2011EFIUpdate.pkg" into product (Bundle-style package "MacBookPro2011EFIUpdate.pkg" is not supported.)
And, if you succeed, please tell how you did that!

Here it is
instead of bundled package, you need a flat package with your component in it. Just put this .scap file in some folder (say "Parts" folder) then turn it into flat PKG file using command:
pkgbuild --root ./Parts --identifier com.whatever.something --install-location /System/Library/CoreServices/Firmware\ Updates/MacBookProEFIUpdate-2.7/ MacBookPro2011EFIUpdate.pkg
productbuild --distribution Distribution --resources Resources Installer.pkg
At the end you can sign it with your Developer ID Installer, using productsign command and you're set!
Hope it helps!
