hfsplus-tools rather - which doesn't even seem to be a valid CentOS package. Even the Everything DVD doesn't have it.

Changing the partition IDs of my HFS partition to '1b' (VFAT Hidden) temporarily didn't help, the bad RPM still gets called.

yes, unfortunately it doesn't work on Mac computers.
I had to build the hfsplus-tools package as a requirement for livecd-tools (http://people.centos.org/arrfab/CentOS7/LiveMedia/RPMS/).
Problem is that RHEL7 doesn't target Apple machines, and anaconda/python-blivet need to be patched (but do we want to modify a base package like Anaconda ?)
Worth reading : https://access.redhat.com/discussions/658253

OTOH, we can try to create a LiveCD/media that would have the python-blivet patch integrated in the live environment (so not in the package itself) but I don't have such machine to test.
