Hi all,

I've written some portability fixes to get Mountain Lion's libdispatch up and running on Linux, and my fork is up on Github for anyone who's interested: https://github.com/nickhutchinson/libdispatch. 

I used Mark Heily's patches[1] that were previously posted on this list as a starting point. Note that I've had no previous experience with Autotools, and so the patches might be a little rough around the edges. Feedback is welcome.

The test suite builds, and most tests pass. However, the following three tests are failing, and I'd love to know why!
- dispatch_starfish
- dispatch_io
- dispatch_vnode

The test output is here: https://gist.github.com/3903724
