Hi drug!

The CMakeList.txt checks for libconfig. But this can be really improved - I'll try to add some sanity checks.

libedit is a dependency from latest LLVM. I am not sure if this must be checked by the LDC files.

Yes, the compiler is itself a debug build. I won't change this until LLVM 3.6 is released (this LLVM is required for the msvc build).

I agree; as far as I'm aware, the public API should not depend on libedit. If it really does, this might be something to alert the LLVM people know about.

Maybe a Release+Asserts build would be a good compromise? I don't recall how much of a difference it makes, though.

I manually added the libedit package on Debian Sid in order to get LDC to build, it wasn't going to build any other way :-(
