Thanks. I thought I'd ask on the list first because the chances are  
fairly high that the problem's with me / my build environment rather  
than the actual darwinbuild tool.

Should the darwinbuild bug tracker be used for other problems with  
projects? (eg. IOKitUser seems to be missing a couple of files  
(iokitmic32.c and iokitmig64.c, referenced from iokitmig.c)) Or is  
there a more appropriate tracker / mailing list for these?
