Hmmm. Nobody did this already, I'm afraid.You can get quite close,  
however. See <http://release.opendarwin.org/> to see what others get.

Works here. I've successfully built kernels for Darwin 8, 8.2 and 8.3  
and all three worked well: <http://www.jump-ing.de/index.php? 
Lang=de&Menu=3&SubMenu=2> I did a small tweak only, as well.

The Darwin kernel should be slightly smaller than the Mac OS X one. A  
debug kernel would be about 10 times (or something in this area) as big.

Not sure about this one.
