You can use a tarball and the support for manual builds, described in:

None of this is going to lift one core limitation of package manager:
"there can be only one".  It doesn't support packages that subsume other
packages, so "org-whatever" is totally different from "org" and would be
installed together when referenced by dependencies even though it makes
no sense.
