Is most of that in _darcs/inventories?  du -mx | sort -nr will tell you.
If so, it's because "darcs record" creates a new inventory each time,
and the only way to remove stale ones is with a get dance (untested):

    darcs get foo foo~
    rm -rf foo/_darcs/inventories
    mv foo~/_darcs/inventories foo/_darcs
    rm -rf foo~
