[libdispatch-dev] Building on Linux

Hi, all.  I checked out libkqueue (r119) and libdispatch (r174) and just 
naively attempted to build.  libkqueue builds and passes it's test suite 
under gcc on Fedora 11 (x86 architecture, of course), libdispatch builds 
the library and part of the test suite but fails when it can't find 
arc4random().  (I gather this is expected.)  Of the tests that build, 
several pass.  Is this about what should happen at this stage in the 
porting effort?

I gather that in the absence of the blocks compiler extension that 
functionally is just ripped out of the suite with the #ifdef __BLOCKS__ 
directives I see in the source?  I'm just trying to understand the 
status of the port at this time and find out whether it's too soon to 
use it to write a toy program to explore the programming model.
