Thanks for your vote and comments I will publish the change this weekend.

It looks like Felix removed it because the Resources folder was already removed, so adding back the deleted code and the Resources folder may get it working again.

I think that Felix remove this line because set the background operation fail in OS X Lion. I'm testing this line and I receive the same error:

from the dmg_setup.scpt
set background picture of theViewOptions to file ".background/background.png"

When I made a "make package-macosx" I receive the following error.
osascript "."/extras/package/macosx/dmg_setup.scpt "vlc-2.1.0-git"
./extras/package/macosx/dmg_setup.scpt:604:681: execution error: Finder got an error: Can’t set file ".background/background.png" of disk "vlc-2.1.0-git" to file ".background/background.png" of disk "vlc-2.1.0-git". (-10006)

I will investigate this error
