In general, the testing tools don't directly depend on kqueue (with the 
exception of dispatch_cffd, which is not portable off of Mac OS X). 
Normally, libdispatch should depend on libkqueue, meaning that applications 
linked aginst libdispatch shouldn't need their own dependency declared unless 
they might use libkqueue but no libdispatch.  If you run ldd on libdispatch as 
built on your system, does it not list libkqueue as a dependency in the same 
way it lists libpthread, etc?
