Just for clarification: I didn't refer to "portable" in the sense of
cross-platform compatibility (svg is simply a text file, so it should be
loadable/editable on any system), but rather in the sense of "I don't
know which tools can render it properly" (and sadly, Charlie confirmed
these doubts).

Anyway, I figured that none of this actually matters. Using the
mac-installer-background-no-version.png, it should be easy to add the
version number with just about any image editing tool. You can try the
following command line, for example (assuming the environment variable
TW_VERSION is set to the string you want to add):
convert mac-installer-background-no-version.png -fill white -font
'FreeSans-Mittel' -pointsize 20 -draw "gravity SouthWest text 17,7
'$TW_VERSION'" mac-installer-background.png

Of course, the font is specific to the installation, something like
Helvetica would probably be more Mac'ish.
