bdist_mpkg uses os.path.realpath() to work around some weirdness with  
the way that Apple has organized Python and to detect the permissions  
it should be using.  Unfortunately, Ronald has /Developer as a  
symlink to that path instead, so when he built the package bdist_mpkg  
decided to put it there.
