No user friendly install package

I'm new to Mac but an extreme Windows power user for over 20 years. I couldn't find a method to install GSmartControl without downloading the source and doing a make and install to compile it. Ridiculous in this day and age. What a shame because it looks like good software.

Some clever programmer will package this up and put it on the Mac App Store for a buck and make a nice coin.

That may have been true 2 years ago, but now in their download section they have a link to the Fink Project and you can download the binary distribution (.deb file) from there.
