I've recently needed to install darcs on a server. The first server
was a FreeBSD box, but its unusual configuration and my inexperience
with FreeBSD made it impossible for the normal "FreeBSD port" to work.
I tried in vain to get a darcs binary for FreeBSD. The next server was
a Debian box on which I do not have root. It has gcc 2.95.4. I
briefly considered installing the ghc6 deb in my own (non-root)
directory, but I saw that the ghc6 deb requires gcc 3.3. Then I got
the statically-linked Linux binary from carpetcode.org. It is darcs
v1.0.0rc3. Well, that's the best I could do. We're using darcs
1.0.0rc3 for now. Gulp!
