Technically, yes, there is a way.  The 'darwinxref loadFiles' command  
will parse a text file that contains lost of entries in the following  

# BUILD 8F46

So if you have such a text file, you can import that prior to  
building anything, and then the darwinxref findFile will work.   
(darwinxref exportFiles will export a text file in this format from  
an existing darwinxref database).

That being said, I haven't gotten around to distributing these files  
yet.  I suppose the right thing to do would be to put them up on  
opendarwin.org, and automatically download it and loadFiles during  
'darwinbuild -init'.  Look for that feature in 0.7.3 ;-)
