I thought it was possible to make .deb files from binaries only.
But maybe I'm mistaken.

Yes, but I was talking about going one step further than this:
DrRacket is bundled into a .sh/.exe/.something file.
I'd like raco to do the same thing for my own projects, and not stop at the
.tgz/.zip/.dmg step, which is still good, but could be better (which
obviously requires some time and work).

That would be as portable as DrRacket distributions, wouldn't it?
