Debian packages most often already come in a 'packaged' format (.deb is the debian-specific format)

running the correct dpkg or aptitude commands on target computers should get the job done

For more info have a look here: http://www.debian.org/doc/manuals/debian-faq/ch-pkgtools.en.html

As a general principle, the various linux 'package formats' should be installable using natively available commandline tools
