You need to wrap the binary in a dual-fork preserving encoding, such as
Macbinary.  See the example cvswrappers file that comes on OS X for what
they did with nib files for example.

However, to do it for a dual-fork file, you'd need a command-line version of
Macbinary, which I don't think exists at this point.
