Hi Ted,

great you try Kst to compile on OS X! 

The class MeasureTime is only used for some internal profiling and
not that important. I would add you patch but don't like the license
because of this entry:

2. Redistributions in binary form must reproduce the above copyright notice, this list of conditions and the following disclaimer in the documentation and/or other materials provided with the distribution.

So I would first simply disable the clock call on OS X.

Hope you could resolve the linker stuff. 
Is there a LD_LIBRARY_PATH on OS X? On Linux i have to set it to kst/build/lib.
