gdc binary package for GNU/Linux
I've made an easy-to-install binary package of GDC (0.19) for GNU/Linux 
on x86, any distribution.  Unfortunately, I have nowhere to host it, and 
not many systems to test it on.

You will definitely need at least GCC 3.4 installed, probably GCC 4.0. 
You will also need glibc 2.3.

GDC from this package can be installed to any path (mostly thanks to 
recent changes making it relocatable :) )

If anyone has somewhere apt to upload it, or would like to test it and 
has an email box big enough to receive it, respond either by email or here.

How big is it ? The binaries for Mac and Win are only about 3 MB ?

Doesn't GDC require the same version for GCC that you used for GDC ?

Haven't been able to get that work too good on Mac/Win yet, though...

I guess we *could* start another "gdcgnu" project at SourceForge,
*or* we start hosting all the different builds in a single place ?

There was talk earlier about a friendly portal to all things GDC...

4.2MB.  Not sure why it's 1M bigger, but it's not that significant.

Not in my experience.

Works great for me :P

The latter would be ideal.

Such as dgcc.sf.net if package-makers were given access *HINT HINT :P*

I meant for things in how it references the modules and binaries:

/usr/include/d/3.3.6/
/usr/lib/gcc/powerpc-apple-darwin7/3.3.6/

/usr/include/d/4.0.1/
/usr/libexec/gcc/powerpc-apple-darwin8/4.0.1/

But maybe you have it set up differently, in this Linux build...

Sounds good, maybe relocation can be enabled again for 0.20 then.

That would be up to David Friedman, I can contribute my build scripts.
