I can speak for myself only, but the ones that will build an Apache alpha
from source, will. I would advocate keeping 'darwin' as identifier for the
platform, because on the unix level it makes itself known as such:

[monalisa:~] sctemme% uname -a
Darwin MonaLisa 1.4 Darwin Kernel Version 1.4: Sun Sep  9 15:39:59 PDT 2001;
root:xnu/xnu-201.obj~1/RELEASE_PPC  Power Macintosh powerpc

Upon a release, we could put a line in the release notes or README of the
dist/httpd directory that says 'For MacOSX, use the darwin distribution' and
/or rely on the Mac download sites to clue users in.

Downloading the darwin tarball right now.
