I had thought that the following release from Darwin 8.9 would have

has a binary PPC and x86 release.
We haven't done binary releases for quite some time, I'm afraid -
years, in fact. Binary releases are no longer supported, though 3rd
party projects like OpenDarwin tried to keep them going for awhile and
eventually stopped due to general lack of interest (or, rather, any
degree of interest which made the "return on investment" of going to
all the work to put them together worth it).
What we've learned through trial-and-error experience is that Darwin
is really all about source availability aimed at increasing
transparency and making the modification of MacOSX more possible.
This is not to say that binary releases would be completely impossible
for anyone else to create (though I suspect it would be a difficult
task, one which only grows more difficult as the number of "pure
MacOSX" dependencies grow), but anyone attempting to do so is
definitely off the trail and on their own.
Do not post admin requests to the list. They will be ignored.
