I don't understand this problem with the executable bit.
the 'configure' file in the darcs repository does have the
executable bit set.

This was my problem. I had forgotten to do

  darcs add zips/gcl-2.6.7*

after doing the 'tla update' and before the 'darcs record'
to update the darcs repository from the main tla archive.

darcs is much easier than tla but tla is more flexible.
I have a feeling that we are not using tla in an optimal
manner. In particular perhaps we should be using "revision
libraries" to reduce the amount of network traffic that
tla generates? Are there any tla guru's out there who
could advise?
