I have no idea why this is happening... see below.

We're just including changed and missing files.

I setup an install requirement that checks for /usr/X11/bin/Xquartz.   
So in theory, it should fail if they uninstalled or never installed  
Leopard's X11.

Yeah, that's what I did

They are all root:wheel.  I'll change the ones that should be  
root:admin to root:admin, but I show them all as root:wheel

I see the 501/20 there.  Why the heck is it doing that?  Is this a  
PackageMaker.app bug?  I even deleted the target and readded it to  
make sure it got the new ownerships.

Ok, I'll try that then.

Thanks for your help,
