Just a disk image containing a PHENIX-<version> folder.  However, because of
the way the installer works, you'll have to put it in /Applications.  Making
it possible to move it elsewhere is potentially a lot of extra work,
unfortunately - this is mostly for the benefit of people who want to run
Phenix on their personal MacBooks, not shared systems, and the nightly
builds will mostly continue to be command-line only.  (I will probably make
disk images for testing sometime next week, however.)
