I suspect I am misunderstanding your question, but...

If you are asking how to make bdist_mkpg actually use MacPython, then 
surely you simply have to have MacPython installed for that to happen? 
That was certainly true for MacPython and bdist_mpkg on 10.4.x.

Or are you asking how to make the installer fail if the user's system is 
missing MacPython? That I don't know. I usually rely on the .mpkg's 
ReadMe and the user being intelligent enough to read it, but of course 
that is a bit risky.

If you are asking how to modify the ReadMe file then that is trivial -- 
just look through the .mpkg package and you'll find it right away. I 
often replace the default ReadMe with my own when creating .mpkg 
installer for others.
