LDC2 Status
I tried LDC2 for Linux out last week and again last night.  I didn't 
spend much time on it on either attempt, but so far I haven't been able 
to get even Hello, World to compile.  It seems like the instructions for 
building druntime, etc. are horribly outdated, the patches bit rotted, 
etc.  Has anyone managed to get past these hurdles and compile Hello, 
World lately?  If so, would you mind posting some instructions?  If LDC2 
is, in fact, mature enough that it would be worthwhile, I'd like to test 
it out, file bug reports, etc.

I was even more self-torturing, I tried to compile it on Windoze twice I think. But it didn't really work.
Also I got the feeling that LDC2 has been hastily updated to the newest dmd frontend without verifying each upgrade step by step and now things are subtly broken.

LDC2 has a way to go before being D2 ready, gdc is far further along. 
From what I can gather, the following should compile ldc, druntime and 
phobos, it seems (very) broken currently though - best to get in touch 
with the guy working on it - I have a feeling he's using an old version 
of druntime.

hg clone https://bitbucket.org/prokhin_alexey/ldc2
cd ldc2
git clone https://github.com/D-Programming-Language/druntime
git clone https://github.com/D-Programming-Language/phobos
ccmake .
# type c, aet D_VERSION and RUNTIME_DIR, type c, set PHOBOS2_DIR,
# type c, type g
make phobos2

Scrap that, Alexy just replied with far better information!

The object module in druntime is always imported implicitly. You could 
try commenting everything in module object and reenabling things as you 
need them.
