If the dmg name is generated from the distribution name that the  
python distutils makes (e.g. macosx-10.5-i386-2.5), then the following  
may be of note:
It appears that the MACOSX_DEPLOYMENT_TARGET environment variable  
controls (among other things) the distutils name. I generally set mine  
to 10.4, or even 10.3, depending on whether anything that I'm building  
requires later features (I'm pretty sure that numpy builds don't.)
