  Take a look at <http://www.opendarwin.org/projs/darwinbuild/doc/tools/index.html#fetch>. Specifically:

    The sources will be downloaded into the Sources directory as a .tar.gz archive. DarwinBuild will use these sources when building the project, but if a directory of the same name (without the .tar.gz suffix) is present inside Sources, then that directory will take precedent. In this way, you can extract the sources and modify them before building with DarwinBuild.

  This is the Sources/ directory in your top-level darwinbuild area, not inside your BuildRoot/

    Hi All:

    Is there a way to prevent darwinbuild from downloading fresh source all the time and just use what's in the SourceCache?  I've been making changes to one project and I have to keep 'tar'-ing and 'gzip'-ing up my changes and put the gzip file into source directory. It's a bit of a pain. Did I just miss a flag?

    Thanks in advance for your time
