Your linker complains about druntime not having been compiled with `-relocation-model=pic`. If PIC is mandatory for Ubuntu 16.10, even for executables and not just shared objects, then you'd need to recompile druntime/Phobos yourself. But I'd first look into your command-line flags/config file, as the error message is rather strange, you probably want an executable and not a DLL.

I am getting the feeling that LDC is not ready for newbies/hobbyists. I am thinking may be I should stick with previous version for now. I guess I can always fall back to C++ if this does not work.
