Actually the --test option works fine for me... 

santiago at braindeath:~$ dnsmasq --test
dnsmasq: sintaxis correcta.

santiago at braindeath:~$ /usr/sbin/dnsmasq --test
dnsmasq: sintaxis correcta.

also, my dnsmasq version is: 

santiago at braindeath:~$ dnsmasq -v

Its not exactly a command, its a signal... i use htop to send signals to some process and 
then watch the log for changes... in OSX, i have no idea... but looking on google might be 
a good idea...  i have few mac pc's at office.. if i remember... ill check later...
