Oh right... it has a -dmg argument.

That simply calls hdiutil create [dmgname] -srcfolder [app bundle path] 
-format UDZO -volname [app base path].

So since you need to put more than your app in the .dmg, use macdeployqt 
to prepare the .app bundle but then setup your image folder explicitly 
(eg. adding the /Applications symlink) and call hdiutil yourself.
