Description:
We are seeing the following error when we try to generate the 10.3 dmg files.

I'm setting this to Verified, as it's happened on recent builds.  The machine in question is osx-tiger-ppc, actually, and apparently something is still not set up properly there for it to generate the .dmg packages.

The impact of this is minimal:
- does not affect, osx 10.4 and 10.5, which are much more popular
- osx 10.3 still has .tar.gz binaries available, which are ok for many people

The effort to fix this is uncertain, but probably involves both release engineers and the sys team in getting the box fully sorted out.

Furthermore, os x 10.3 is not supported for MySQL 5.1+, so this is a 5.0 issue only.
