The current DMG is Inkscape 0.91:
  • lxml is included (essential for all python-based extensions).
  • numpy is included.
  • scour was not yet an external dependency in Inkscape 0.91 (but yes, everything that is needed to save as 'Optimized SVG' in Inkscape 0.91 is included in the Inkscape 0.91 DMG).
  • UniConvertor 1.1.5 is included.
  • pyserial is not included.
  • GhostScript (for PS/EPS import) is not included (nor is it on Windows).
  • File > Import Clip Art is not supported with self-contained relocatable packages of Inkscape 0.91 for OS X/macOS.

A new DMG (planned for Inkscape 0.92.2, not yet released):
  • lxml will be included (essential for all python-based extensions).
  • numpy will be included.
  • scour 0.35 will be included, as well as its dependency six.
  • UniConvertor 1.1.5 will be included.
  • pyserial 3.0 will be included.
  • potrace will be included (now an external dependency).
  • GhostScript (for PS/EPS import) will not be included (nor is it on Windows).
  • File > Import Clip Art will not supported with self-contained relocatable packages of Inkscape 0.92.2 for OS X/macOS.

Thanks for the info!
Have a nice day.

I'm using Inkscape 0.92.2 (5c3e80d, 2017-08-06), 64 bit win8.1

The Inkscape manual has lots of helpful info! http://tavmjong.free.fr/INKSCAPE/MANUAL/html/
