Make sure $ISE_EIFFEL and $ISE_PLATFORM are pointing to the delivery you want to make a package for. The version of EiffelStudio will automatically be detected so your package will be named correctly and also contain all information related to your delivery.
Regardless which distribution you want to create a package for, you will need a directory called packaging and a script called make_unix_layout from https://svn.origo.ethz.ch/eiffelstudio/trunk/Delivery/scripts/unix/. The packaging directory contains build related files for all distribution. make_unix_layout is used by the packaging scripts to create the final unix layout for EiffelStudio (the way it will be installed later on the end user's system).
In a terminal, type the following commands in the directory you want to create your package(s). In general you do not need root access to build the packages.
export SVNURL=https://svn.origo.ethz.ch/eiffelstudio svn export $SVNURL/trunk/Delivery/scripts/unix/packaging svn export $SVNURL/trunk/Delivery/scripts/unix/make_unix_layout
