copumpkin (Dan Peebles) is working on the "next gen" Darwin support, where we
build with a totally pure build environment, allowing for reproducible builds
across machines of the same OS version.  The joelteon (Joel Taylor) branch is
what you should be using today, if you are less adventurous.

Once we get joelteon's stuff merged into the mainline, attention will shift to
copumpkin's branch as the next best thing for Darwin.
