You cannot build a mac package or the mac executable on pc nor can you create a pc exe on mac.

That’s not quite true since you can legally run XP or Linux in a virtual machine. That’s why I use a Mac as my main development platform[1], as it allows me to easily reach across the three systems I need to support.

You can certainly compile Windows exe/dlls directly in OSX using a cross-compiler version of MinGW (gcc for Windows). I don’t think the tools exist to go the other way, unless you had access to an OSX emulator/VM.
