Errors compiling programs using Derelict 3 under DMD 2
I posted on stackoverflow but there hasn't been much in the way 
of actually resolving my problem, I'll post the link here in the 
hopes someone can answer my question.

Hmmm, maybe you are linking in the libs from Derelict 2?

On my end, I avoid this altogether by compiling the needed 
derelict modules directly in my program instead of bothering with 
a library.

I can't see why I should bother with library files for a library 
that has only D modules, assuming that I'm not dealing with .di 
files.

Am I missing something here? Tools like rdmd seem to make 
compiled libraries fairly redundant.

So I should just put the .d files from Derelict3 in the same 
folder as my project?

That looks to me like it has to do with ordering. When using the GCC 
tools, the order the libraries are passed to the linker matters. Try 
moving the pragma for DerelictUtil beneath the one for GLFW3. If that 
doesn't work, try this on the command line:

-L-lDerelictGL3 -L-lDerelictGLFW3 -L-lDerelictUtil

You also need to be linking with libdl if you aren't already, since 
DerelictUtil has a dependency on it.

I should mention, the best place to ask about Derelict issues is the 
Derelict forum.

I got it running on my windows PC so I suppose I can just use 
that for now, I had to add the .lib/.a files directly to the lib 
directory in the dmd compiler. This is hard to do on linux 
because it installs to your filesystem's protected area(ie. 
normal users can't access it). Something to think about I suppose.

Good to hear you got it working, but that's not a good solution. You 
should never have to drop libraries into the dmd directory tree. It 
would be beneficial to you to figure out how to get it working normally. 
Your current approach can cause headaches when you upgrade DMD.
