Add the .dmg files to an ISO archive using mkisofs from sysutils/cdrtools, and 
burn them using burncd or sysutils/dvd+rw-tools.

Apple's .dmg format isn't recognized by anything on FreeBSD that I know of; 
people who want to make an archive of files available in a cross-platform 
fashion from a Mac ought to use tar, pax, or maybe zip/jar.

[ A Mac can open a .dmg file from an ISO CD-ROM just fine, of course. ]
