Commit message: Pull in lksctp-tools for USE=sctp
i've added the dep now and fixes all the main systems. however, lksctp-tools isn't keyworded on bsd systems, and i don't know how SCTP works for them, so over to them to figure out the right answer.

My virtual/sctp ebuild solves this (attached). I was going to add that along with SCTP support to OpenSSL, but then Heartbleed happened, so I held off until the turmoil died down.
Mainly, for at least Gentoo/FreeBSD, it pulls in the sys-freebsd/freebsd-lib package, while Linux pulls in lksctp-tools. I imagine the OpenBSD and NetBSD ports (if we even have those) would need similar.
(In reply to Joshua Kinard from comment #6)
if the goal of the virtual is to provide a library, then it should be named "libsctp" instead
