build.bat:
@echo off
rdmd --build-only -ofmyApp -IC:\Dlang\dmd2\src\ext\Derelict2\import -L+C:\Dlang\dmd2\src\ext\Derelict2\lib\ 
DerelictSDL.lib DerelictGL.lib DerelictUtil.lib DerelictGLU.lib src/main.d

Note:

1. After the "@echo off", that's supposed to be one line.

2. "rdmd" instead of "dmd"

3. Only one ".d" file is given: The one with main()

4. The ".d" file is the *last* param.

Or to make it a little cleaner:

@echo off

IMPORT = -IC:\Dlang\dmd2\src\ext\Derelict2\import
LIB_PATHS = -L+C:\Dlang\dmd2\src\ext\Derelict2\lib\
LIB_INCLUDES = DerelictSDL.lib DerelictGL.lib DerelictUtil.lib 
DerelictGLU.lib
EXE_NAME = myApp

rdmd --build-only -of%EXE_NAME% %IMPORT% %LIB_PATHS% %LIB_INCLUDES% 
src/main.d

Of course, you can use rdmd with make too, but I've never really liked 
dealing with make.

I mean, leave off the, um... first last backslash too :)

LIB_PATHS = -L+C:\Dlang\dmd2\src\ext\Derelict2\lib

Very cool, thanks for going to all the trouble. It only takes the one 
souce file, does rdmd build out other files automatically?

In that case it starts looking for Derelict2\lib.lib instead of 
Derelict2\lib\

What rdmd does is takes the file with "main()", figures out all the ".d" 
files needed, checks if any of them have been changed, and if so, it sends 
them all to dmd to be compiled. If you omit the "--build-only" it will also 
run the program you built. The full format for rdmd is:

rdmd {params for dmd and rdmd} main.d {params for main.exe}

So if you have:

//main.d
import std.stdio;
void main(string[] args)
{
   writeln("Hello", args[1]);
}

Then you can do this:

> rdmd main.d Joe
Hello Joe

>

It's an awesome tool. You can run just "rdmd" by itself to see all it's 
options.

Be aware though, rdmd has some issues if you're not using at least DMD 
2.055.

Hmm, looks like it would be awesome, unfortunately it spits out a bunch 
of "previous definition different" errors on the linker, in relation to 
the libraries. Oh well, I seem to be able to get it working with dmd for 
now.

This could be caused by having two 'main' functions in all the modules that 
rdmd finds.

Re: Simple I know, but could use some help compiling with make
I had exactly this problem too, I asked on the Derelict forums:
http://www.dsource.org/forums/viewtopic.php?t=5856&sid=8ebff671fafec3bd8962ddfceaf99eb8

At the moment I've resolved this by building Derelict with make, first a normal full
build, then a second run using the cleandi target, which removes the generated di files.
I've set up the Derelict lib and include paths in dmd's sc.ini file, so I just have to
call 'rdmd main.d' to build and run.

Hmm, so it's a bug in rdmd trying to compile the .di files or something?
