#1

Anyone using rubsyscript2exe on Mac OS X to generate standard Mac
application bundles, or at the very least a standalone archive that can
be deployed in an application bundle?

try use platypus http://sveinbjorn.org/platypus

Any examples of Ruby-Tk applications that are deployed in this fashion?

From what I’ve heard, you may get better results with RubyCocoa:

Depends what you want to do.
Platypus is for pretty much just skinning a script with a GUI, but
RubyCocoa is an actual bridge that allows you to write code that
accesses the Cocoa framework directly using Ruby rather than
Objective-C.
RubyCocoa will require a lot more knowledge of Cocoa and even
Objective-C than would Platypus.

My bad. Platypus looks cool.
