To find the version of Xcode, get info on /Developer/Applications/ or run:

defaults read \
/Developer/Applications/ \

No, Mac OS X 10.5.6 is Darwin 9.6.0. The first number of the Darwin  
version is four more than the second number of the Mac OS X version,  
and the second number of the Darwin version is the same as the third  
number of the Mac OS X version. The first number of the Mac OS X  
version is always 10, and the last number of the Darwin version is,  
as far as I've seen, either 1 (only on Mac OS X 10.4.x on Intel Macs)  
or 0 everywhere else.
