This is a bit different nowadays but still doesn't work:

make: *** No rule to make target '../config.d', needed by '../generated/linux/release/64/version_check'.  Stop.

2.090 contains a VERSION file. However, now `make -f posix.mak` it fails with:

dmd/doc.d(366): Error: file `"default_ddoc_theme.ddoc"` cannot be found or not in a path specified with `-J`

make: *** [posix.mak:110: dmd] Error 1

Indeed, the file is nowhere to be found in the distribution.

Looks like it's in res/default_ddoc_theme.ddoc in the DMD repo.

My guess is that this was probably missed/broken when we moved to build.d?  But I don't know how the release process works so I'm not sure. I'm surprised that we don't test that sources releases can be built before we release them. Sounds like something that would be good to add.
