Re: Mac OS X, 22.0.91, configure without --enable-carbon-app

I tried to avoid mucking around with the make file that much because adding in 
all my DMG creation seemed like unnecessary bloat (like adding a 
--mac-app-prefix).  Since the /usr folder is hidden on OSX, it seemed that 
keeping it separate was a good idea.

I wouldn't be against moving this from make-package to the makefile, but I 
don't think it's that big a deal.
