Build v3.03 released
Release 3.03 (build #2371) is now available 20 Sep 2006 
URL: http://www.dsource.org/projects/build 

Change Log Summary
------------------
** FIX: Ticket #33 For unix editions, 'pthread' is now a default library,
'-g' is used instead of '/co' to generate debug data, '-o ' is used instead
of '-of', and spaces are placed in between consecutive '-L' switches. Note
that if you want to place library files on the command line, you still have
to include the '.a' file suffix. 

** FIX: Ticket #34 For GNU, 'gdc' is the default linker, the library switch
is now '-L-l', 'gphobos' is used instead of 'phobos', and the makefile
includes the '-version=BuildVerbose' switch. 

** FIX: Ticket #35 It is now possible to use relative paths on the command
line files. 

** FIX If you use the '-od' switch then the '-op' switch is not used. 

** CHG: Ticket #36 The default name for the executable is now 'bud', but
you can change it to anything you like. 

** CHG: Ticket #37 Changed defaults to support GDC out-of-the-box. 

** ENH The utility now also checks for a '[darwin]' section in the
Configuration File. 

** ENH The utility now supports the import syntax that was introduced with
DMD v0.163. 

** ENH The distribution now includes example configuration files for a
number of environments. 

** ENH The Configuration File now supports a new FINAL command that allows
you to run jobs after a successful build.


There are a number of example configuration files now distributed with the
source. Please select the one closest to your own environment and tweak as
needed if you are having problems with the 'default' settings. If you can't
get it to run using the compiler/linker/librarian of your choice after
trying the configuration files, please let me know.

Note that the distributed Windows executable files have been compressed
with UPX. This shouldn't be an issue but I thought you might like to know.

Seems that it needs GDC 0.20 (DMD 0.163+) to compile ? :-(

# make -f Makefile.gdc

util/fdt.d:69: ';' expected
util/fdt.d:69: no identifier for declarator std.c.windows.windows
util/fdt.d:70: ';' expected
util/fdt.d:70: no identifier for declarator std.c.linux.linux
util/fdt.d:71: ';' expected
util/fdt.d:71: no identifier for declarator std.c.darwin.darwin
util/fdt.d:72: ';' expected

Old compiler doesn't like those "static import" statements.

PS. Maybe it should be mentioned that std.c.darwin.darwin
    is deprecated in favor of std.c.unix.unix for all Unix

Sorry. I didn't know that. I haven't used GDC. I guess it will catch up
soon. 

Is there a special version that GDC sets?

Didn't know that either.

Thank you, this is great, now I can use the new import syntax with build!
The changes to the -od switch will make generating documentation with 
build quite effortless.

According to the changelog it was introduced in DMD 0.163,
while GDC 0.19 is currently DMD 0.162 - so it was close :-)

> Is there a special version that GDC sets?

Yes, GDC sets "version(GNU)" and DMD sets "version(DigitalMars)"

This information is available from the "unofficial" page at:
http://www.prowiki.org/wiki4d/wiki.cgi?DocComments/Version

Both are available, and they include the same thing: (autoconf)

module std.c.darwin.darwin;
import gcc.configunix;

The theory is that all the common stuff goes in std.c.unix.unix
and that the platform specific stuff goes in std.c.${OS}.${OS}

module std.c.unix.unix;

/* This module imports the unix module for the currect
   target system.  Currently, all targets can be
   handled with the autoconf'd version. */

import gcc.configunix;

An exception is std.c.linux.linux which also imports some extra
modules to stay backwards compatible with the module from DMD...

FWIW, the GDC source available via SVN is more up to date.  I believe 
it's in synch with DMD 166.

Cool, haven't really payed attention while trying to wxD out...

Maybe we need nightly builds of GDC ? :-) I might do an interim
release for Mac and Win, since I had planned to upgrade GCC anyway.

Thanks, Derek!

I've been waiting for this update. :D

Sorry to say, 3.03 is messed up for Windows builds.

In the linker .rsp file, the libraries are placed on separate lines. 
Optlink wants all the libraries on 1 line with '+' between the lib names.

Re: Build v3.03 released
In util/fdt.d, the section:

    version(Windows) static import opsys = std.c.windows.windows;
    version(linux)   static import opsys = std.c.linux.linux;
    version(darwin)  static import opsys = std.c.darwin.darwin;
    version(Unix)    static import opsys = std.c.unix;
    version(Posix)   static import std.string;

needs to become:

    version(Windows) static import opsys = std.c.windows.windows;
    else version(linux)   static import opsys = std.c.linux.linux;
    else version(darwin)  static import opsys = std.c.darwin.darwin;
    else version(Unix)    static import opsys = std.c.unix;
    else version(Posix)   static import std.string;

This is because the different platforms aren't mutually exclusive, so 
it'll end up importing two modules as opsys, oops :(

PS: With that change, works fine with GDC-svn
