As far as I know the complete operating system, Darwin, has not been
available with any installer or binaries for a couple years. (Source
releases are still done, but no real community to provide or support a
usable open source operating system.)
It looks like all the packaging systems for Darwin also no longer exist or
are very out-of-date (or have become Mac OS X only).
So it looks like pkgsrc is the only packaging system that is available and
still works on Darwin.
Anyone here still using Darwin with pkgsrc? What version of Darwin?

p.s. I brought this up because it was discussed on the Darwin OS list and
I suggested pkgsrc and the original poster tried it and found it was the
only one that worked.
