Indeed, I just tried the above (not remembering your message, reinventing the wheel instead after after reading hdiutil's man page):

% hdiutil create -fs HFS+ -srcfolder "TeX Live utility" "TeX Live Utility HFS+".dmg
....could not access /Volumes/TeX Live Utility/TeX Live Utility.app/Contents/MacOS/.BC.T_IFN1J4 - Opération non permise

Here's what I've done, I don't know whether this can be scripted:

- Create an empty image in HFS+ format

% hdiutil create -fs HFS+ -size 32m -volname "TeX Live Utility" "HFS+ Image".dmg
created: /Users/brunovoisin/Desktop/HFS+ Image.dmg

- Mount the image and drag TeX Live Utility.app onto the associated volume in the Finder.

- Create an image of the volume:

% hdiutil create -srcfolder /Volumes/"TeX Live Utility" "TeX Live Utility".dmg 
created: /Users/brunovoisin/Desktop/TeX Live Utility.dmg

The resulting image seems to be HFS+. What I got is at (link valid a month)
