Yes, the 0.6 release which I've just announced, performs chroot  
builds by default.  In order to deal with bootstrapping new builds, a  
new -depsbuild parameter has been added.  This parameter specifies  
which build should be used to populate the BuildRoot.

So, to build the new launchd sources for 10.4.2 (8C46) before all  
those roots become available, do the following:

# mkdir /tmp/BuildTest && cd /tmp/BuildTest
# darwinbuild -init 8C46
# darwinbuild -depsbuild=8A428 launchd

There are some additional details on the DarwinBuild website:
