Yeah and I was so wrong about that. Clearly the execution of the program failed ( https://github.com/dlang/dmd/blob/73fcf82ae1d6f0582c19e8c2ae0d09f319745521/src/dmd/link.d#L905 ) not the linking part. The problem is that for whatever reason, Nix's clang does not add executable rights if the output file was already created without executable rights. I created https://github.com/NixOS/nixpkgs/issues/57120 .
