DARPA isn't building anything. If you read the site you'll see that it's just a study in how to develop a path to develop the technologies needed to eventually build a ship.

Doesn't matter, its going to take 100 years of organizing, planning, testing and building to get such a starship going. Our problem on Earth is usually short-sightedness, the fact that there is even money involved now is a good sign to me.

What "doesn't matter"? Did you respond to the wrong person here? Because you seem to be agreeing with my post. DARPA realizes it will take 100 years. That's what this study is about. Developing an organization that can last that long to achieve it's goal.
It doesn't matter they're not actually building the ship, as many people are reading into this. Yes we are agreeing...
