If you need to get links from higher pr sites how does anyone get to pr10?
Become the ultimate authority on your subject as mentioned above. Very few sites will make PR9/PR10. Those that do are usually the authorities in their industry.
Length of time on the web also has some influence. You'll notice that those sites who are PR9/PR10 have been online for quite some time. They have thousands and tens of thousands of links pointing to them. Those that have not and have made the coveted PR9/PR10, must have links from very high authority sites, usually .org and .edu sites. Although .com is in the mix too along with a few other tlds.
If you are sitting at PR8 now (congratulations) invest your time in developing more quality content that people want to link to. There is no need to go on a link seeking campaign, they will come naturally.
You can even get to PR9+ if your software is only "really useful" instead of "vital".
Since I wrote that, I got to looking around with IE and the toolbar, and I realized how many sites out there with PR9 or PR10 are offering some of my code for download.
Now if I could only get links from all the Linux and BSD distros that include some of my patches, and I would be up in that rarified air of high PR myself.
Then again, I'm kicking butt on the SERPs with a lowly PR5 main page. Anything much past PR6 and it will just be an ego thing.
A few of these threads may serve in getting the juices flowing again...

PR Hunting technics
My profile site is back to PR 8 after the last recalibration, but (barring major recalibration) I think my chances of ever making PR 9 are absolutely zero.
>PR8 is great, but to jump to 9 is exponential from 7 to 8. You need 2 times as much links from higher PR sites.
Korkus, I see it this way. If it took you a year's effort to get a certain quality of links to achieve a PR7, it will probably take 6 or 7 times that same quality effort to get to PR8.
As Ciml, says only a few very exceptional links from very high Pageranked sites will leap-frog that effort.
What I would consider to be the real value to having a PR8+ site would be the ability to make many instant PR6 sites whenever I wanted, and give that site a good jumpstart till it earned it's own inbound links.
You cannot get higher than #1 in the SERPs, and in most cases that can be achieved with pr5-7. Use it wisely and spread he wealth with your other pages.
By the way, does anyone know of any pages with PR9+ that got there through reciprocal links? It seems to me that all of the one's that I know of got there by being worth linking to.
Danny, I looked at your PR8 site. It looks like 95% of the links are from your own site. I wonder why Google considers those inbound links for "some" sites, but for most sites not. Anyone knows?
(I'm just a physician so my use of english mathematical words might be inappropriate, I'm sorry)
Just wondering, do you need a PR of 9 or 10? Or is it just an ego thing?
Does your site truely rate a PR of 9 or 10? Does your site rank as being as important as Yahoo, apache, Redhat, Google, microsoft, adobe, sun, gnu, apple, fsf?
If your site it that good just wait a while, and you will get there. If it isn't, enjoy your 8, you are unlikely to ever reach a 10.
Put content on your page that will get millions of links without you having to hunt them down. Start several forums so that people will want to link to their own discussions and by doing that, it will link to your ego site.
Set up an archive of the LKML that is so nice that you are the one with the site that people point to when a major controversy breaks out.
Make your site a news maker during the first week of each month so that the big news organisations all point to you during the crawl.
I had PR9 for a while with only 3 incoming links from PR 9 pages, and 3 from PR8, plus 3-400 from PR4, PR5 and PR6's. Unfortunately I am now down to PR6, but my rankings and traffic is up (go figure):)
PR9 is certainly achievable for a commercial site, even if you only have a few PR8 and PR9 links. However, I think PR10 is nearly impossible.
