As you probably know, darcs 1.0.2 doesn't build with ghc 6.4 due to
darcs' usage of some ghc internal APIs that have changed. However the
devel version does, and using a static Linux binary to retrieve the
current darcs code does the trick. I've documented the procedure here:


The plist will be wrong because the documentation is missing, but the
program works.

Darcs 1.0.3 will fix this. In the meantime the port should either be
marked BROKEN or you could store a tarball of a snapshot at the freebsd
site and use that one until 1.0.3 comes out and use that one instead of
the 1.0.2 tarball.

I've been playing with darcs for some hours already and it seems to
work fine so far.
