Yes. Do NOT, I implore you, do NOT change the MacOS X .pkg association.
You run the risk of breaking Software Update and various other things

I agree with the above... Package Typer should fix your problem. It
changes the chosen package's resource fork's creator codes and file
types, so you're only changing the individual file (rather than a
system-wide association change). I think it's on UNNA. You just drag
packages onto it, and it fixes their association.
