Not sure what you mean here but basically a (future) installation is:

- unzip the main zip file
- goto the source subtree
- run build.sh (assumes compiler and cmake installed)
- move the binary file to the relevant bin location
- set symlinks from luametatex to mtsrun and context
- copy mtxrun.lua and context.lue there too
- adapt your path
- maybe add texmf-fonts and texmf-projects
- and you're done

so, something like that, or ... use the online installer instead.

And how a packager then use that is upto the packager .. we don't 
prescript something at all.
