It's fixed. And I've also (finally) added a link to Bob's packman
to the package manager help.
The problem is that the darwin version changes with every MacOSX
While in principle this could cause incompatibilities in practice it
has (as far as I'm aware), so for a next version of PackMan we should
strip the darwin minor release number. Or maybe first try "darwin-6.8"
and if that fails "darwin-6".
