[darwinbuild] No luck building

I fixed the problem regarding -init 8B15.  That should work now.

Yes, in general darwinbuild will automatically fetch any necessary  
header files.  But unfortunately in this case the automount sources  
themselves are broken.  They should not reference URLMountPrivate.h  
since that header is not publicly available.  At this time, it is not  
possible to build automount as-is outside Apple.
