!!! The sources in CVS at src/build/darwinbuild will no longer be
maintained. They have moved to proj/darwinbuild !!!
The new darwinxref is fully functional, and darwinbuild has been
updated to use it. The proj/darwinbuild directory contains a fully-
functional darwinbuild, with the exception of the auxiliary scripts
(i.e. installheaders, packageRoots) and plists for any of the Darwin
7 builds. Once I move these over, I'll produce a darwinbuild-0.6
Some notable changes:
* darwinbuild and darwinxref are now installed into /usr/local
* darwinbuild can download plists from OpenDarwin.og
* darwinbuild -init <build> can be used to initialize the current
directory as a build environment
$ mkdir /tmp/8A428
$ cd /tmp/8A428
$ darwinbuild -init 8A428
$ sudo -s
# darwinbuild xnu
* new builds can be bootstrapped using the -depsbuild argument,
specifying which build dependencies should be pulled from
$ mkdir /tmp/8B15
$ cd /tmp/8B15
$ darwinbuild -init 8B15
$ sudo -s
# darwinbuild -depsbuild=8A428 xnu
