Thanks for the work, Scooter!

I'm sure lots of folks appreciate actually being able to build Darcs on
MacPorts, but I was wondering if you'd instead submitting an update to
get the port building on Darcs 2.4.4 (which requires a version of
hashed-storage that in turn requires mmap 0.4)?

From a maintenance standpoint, I think I'd be a bit more comfortable
with as much a stock Darcs as possible :-)  Also darcs 2.4.4 fixes
some bugs in 2.4.1, see http://wiki.darcs.net/Releases/2.4 

Note also that the upcoming Darcs 2.5 will require mmap-0.5

PS. If I may do a bit of advertising, there's also an official OS X
    binary on http://wiki.darcs.net/Binaries now
