A bioconductor package isn't really any different than an R package
(except that bioc suggests/requires(?) you to use S4 OO, if you're
defining any of your on class at all).

So, take a look at some of the manuals for creating R packages:

* http://cran.r-project.org/doc/manuals/R-exts.pdf
* http://cran.r-project.org/doc/contrib/Leisch-CreatingPackages.pdf

Hope that helps,
