Looks like Peter created that script- did you have any ideas about using otool or some other technique to detect the dependencies and copy them into place?  I can work on this too, but not for another week or so...

In principle we only have to replace pathes in the shared libraries using otool.
Most is documented by Qt:

When we build frameworks this is automatically done by macdeployqt, but it could also
be done by handwritten scripts, like the one for the non-framework plugins.

But I don't know if there is a more standard way of creating dmgs that handwritten scripts.

And soon we'll add cmake support, maybe there is better support of creating dmgs.
