Greetings. Does anyone know of a way to get a Mac OS package installer to omit a certain file or two from installing? I've tried Pacifist but it's not quite what I was looking for.

I have my outdated Macbook running Mountain Lion and to install updates I need to keep it from installing any updated PlatformSupport files. Otherwiese, I would have to manually copy over the "patched" (just an extra entry including my Macbook) copy. I was just hoping to avoid that part of it as it should work fine (unless it does an updated Boot.efi file too) with the rest of it.
