note: these are my uninformed ideas, I have not actually seen the
implementation for the methods you describe...
I think JHBuild is *almost* able to do this itself. If the binary/zip
module type patch was applied to JHbuild then I think this would not be
too much work to complete.
AIUI JHbuild now tracks installed files and can create a manifest. This
manifest + JHbuild supporting binary/zip module types would give you all
the meta information to write msi/wix/nsi installers.
