No, the Windows and OSX installers are just that. They provide no
facilities for finding packages, identifying the package a given file
came from, or dependency tracking. OSX's installer doesn't even have
uninstall support; it records the installed files, but provides no
mechanism for undoing configuration changes such as removing
package-installed kernel modules.
