I totally missed the Wiki. Now I have tried, but they didn't work.
* http://membres.lycos.fr/schaffner/prog/darcs-darwin-1.0.1.gz
This one is linked to very specific versions of some libraries in  
/usr/lib, libssl0.9.7 and libcrypto0.9.7, while I only have  
libxxx.0.9.dylib versions. Perhaps I could symlink, but that seems ugly.

Here the same crypto and ssl libraries are needed. It also needs  
libcurl.2.dylib and the HaskellSupport framework. I have extracted the  
haskell support framework from the latest GHC package, but I don't have  

Is there someone who runs darcs on mac os x 10.2 that can tell me how  
to do it?
