Packaging DMG with Ant fails on OS-X 10.13.3

I ran into this bug a couple months ago with javafx packager on High Sierra.

The problem is basically that hdiutil changed its default file system to
APFS, which breaks many things.   Ultimately I wasn't able to get javafx
packager to work even with the workarounds listed on that bug so just
generated the DMG using a 3rd party script ( to work around it.
