Thanks for trying.

I've established that the --modernize-patches first appeared in darcs
1.0.4... which I wasn't able to build with GHC 6.6.1.

So right now, our easy options right now are to (a) look for a later
version of darcs which still knows how to modernize those particular
mergers and which compiles with a relatively recent GHC or (b) find a
way to install GHC 6.4 on your machine (c) somehow convince darcs
1.0.4 to build with a relatively modern GHC (say 6.6).

David: any other ideas?
