[swift-corelibs-dev] building libdispatch on El Capitan

Hi Drew,

Unfortunately you are correct. We are aware that the open source version of dispatch will not build on OS X due to missing dependencies. The one on GitHub is focused on the Linux port at the moment, but we will update the list if there is any change in the status of the dependencies required to build on OS X.

However I cannot actually find any libplatform on opensource.apple.com <http://opensource.apple.com/release/os-x-10112/>.  Not sure if related or a red herring.
