There's a patch:

Usually this is because there's a patch that's needed, and you can  
check the OpenDarwin site.  If you'd like, OpenDarwin has its own  
property list for 8F46 available at:

If you download this plist, and re-run darwinbuild -init with it, you  
will get all of the OpenDarwin patches automatically:

# curl -O http://release.opendarwin.org/release/8.3.1/plists/ 
# darwinbuild -init 8F46od1.plist

Also, I just noticed that our correspondence hasn't been sent to the  
darwinbuild@ mailing list.  In general I like to answer questions  
with the mailing list cc'd, so that everyone can benefit from the  
answers to the questions.  Is it OK if i re-send our emails to the  
mailing list?
