I can't test it as I don't have a Mac but I have a question about it.
Why are both GraphicsMagick and ImageMagick packaged?  Octave needs
one or the other but not both (they are two libraries for image IO
with compatible APIs).

Also, looking inside the dmg file, I see GraphicsMagick was built
with quantum depth 8 and ImageMagick with quantum depth 16.  This
is kinda of confusing to me.  Why is that?

Turned out to be two questions.
