I was building a single package that would run in Jaguar, Panther and  
Tiger by using the object but it wouldn't run in Leopard so I was  
going to do a rebuild and I was hoping to build binaries that would  
have no external dependancies so it would work everywhere but for now  
I'll work on getting it working in 10.5.

OK, I have Leopard usable binaries in 4 architectures (ppc7400,  
ppc64, i386 and x86_64), I obtained the 9A581.plist file and tried to  
build xnu as a dry run (always my first build) but it appears it  
wants to download the root dependancies from the 8A428 repository,  
will this be resolved soon or is there a setting I need to change or  
a different plist file maybe?

One other issue poped up that I'm not sure how to resolve, "/sbin/ 
mount_volfs" doesn't exist so it can't copy the file so it fails at  
this stage, is there a solution?
