Provide a standard Apple installer package

The silent installer that ships for SPSS Statistics for Mac OS is widely known to be poorly working and problematic. Further more, it requires a system Java runtime to be present even though the application itself does not need a system Java to be installed.

IBM should be shipping a proper Apple installer package.
