Here's how I do it with OS10.4

Do a "Get Info" on the .pkg file

Down the panel aways there's an "Open With" Choice Box.

If NCX is installed it should be one of the choices.

Make that choice and the .pkg icon should change from the OSX box to
the neatly tied Newton "pillow".

If OSX has change the file type sufficiently you sometimes end up with
a PeeCee type. I haven't figured out how to recover these.
