Deterministic OS X Dmg Notes.
Working OS X DMGs are created in Linux by combining a recent clang,
the Apple's binutils (ld, ar, etc), and DMG authoring tools.
the Apple binutils (ld, ar, etc) and DMG authoring tools.
Apple uses clang extensively for development and has upstreamed the necessary
functionality so that a vanilla clang can take advantage. It supports the use
of -F, -target, -mmacosx-version-min, and --sysroot, which are all necessary
when building for OS X. A pre-compiled version of 3.2 is used because it was not
available in the Precise repositories at the time this work was started. In the
future, it can be switched to use system packages instead.
when building for OS X.
Apple's version of binutils (called cctools) contains lots of functionality
missing in the FSF's binutils. In addition to extra linker options for
frameworks and sysroots, several other tools are needed as well such as
install_name_tool, lipo, and nmedit. These do not build under linux, so they
have been patched to do so. The work here was used as a starting point:

No effort was made to fix this cleanly, so it likely leaks memory badly. But
it's only used for a single invocation, so that's no real concern.
genisoimage cannot compress DMGs, so afterwards, the 'dmg' tool from the
libdmg-hfsplus project is used to compress it. There are several bugs in this
tool and its maintainer has seemingly abandoned the project. It has been forked
