How to build an installation package that does not include our application source code?

I' need to build an installation package of our application, in which NO SOURCE CODE should be included. The installation package will then be used to install executables, shared libraries, etc. of our application to a new machine with identical OS and environment. Is building a binary RPM package the way to go, or are there better ways to do it? I'm using Mandrake Linux 10.0.

    Best way is to build an RPM. Then no source code gets copied.
