The installation and iso creating scripts are not part of the OSE source
distribution. For the windows stuff, there is
but you are obviously trying to create a linux-based installer ... or OSX?

Many Linux distributions package vbox OSE GA, or at least someone
releases packages, opensuse build service etc. I'd start there, even
though it is no iso.
