I've tried this several times and never got it working. There are so  
many dependencies that the process seems very fragile. But the biggest  
issue is that even if you succeed, the .app bundle will be useless  
anyway unless you're logged in as root when you run it. You could  
certainly run it from Terminal with sudo, but then there isn't much  
point in having an .app bundle. :)

Maybe we can make it pop up an authentication dialog: "Zenmap requires
that you type your password."
