 Kathy and I have confirmed that file mode is lost inside dmg2mar during
 the 7z extraction step. Unless there is a 7z option to preserve this, it
 is probably a bug in 7z. In the short run, maybe we can:
 1. use the mar tool to extract each complete mar file
 2. manually fix file and dir modes to match those used inside the dmg
 3. use the mar tool to re-create the mar
 4. push the fixed mar files to dist.tpo
