You can use the object file displaying tool – otool. The ldd equivalent otool parameter is -L:

-L print shared libraries used

$ otool -L ~/bin/wget
/usr/lib/libssl.0.9.8.dylib (compatibility version 0.9.8, current version 0.9.8)
/usr/lib/libcrypto.0.9.8.dylib (compatibility version 0.9.8, current version 0.9.8)

/usr/lib/libSystem.B.dylib (compatibility version 1.0.0, current version 125.2.1)

If you do not have the otool command, make sure Xcode is properly installed.
