On wiki I read: "Get a native ARM GNU/Linux compiler from the official release page."

Provided link redirect me to github releases page. But there's no arm binaries available.

There isn't on the first page, but on the next one:

https://github.com/ldc-developers/ldc/releases/tag/v1.1.0

Only a couple ldc devs have linux/ARM boards and they're not usually able to provide a build.

QEMU can emulate armhf, you don't need a board, i guess.
By the way on aliexpress an orangepi costs 6.99$ and run linux on arm.

Great! So can I write you down as the person who uploads the ARM binaries upon beta/release?  ;-) ;P

Sorry, I'm not a ldc developer :)
But I use D on arm!

I own a Raspberry Pi 3. If somebody walks me through the necessary steps, I'd be willing to provide binaries for ARMv7.

Another option would be to cross-compile the native linux/ARM ldc with a bootstrap ldc cross-compiler for linux/x64, as I did with the Android/ARM package I setup for the Termux Android app:

https://github.com/termux/termux-packages/tree/master/packages/ldc

That works well for me with Android/ARM, might work for linux/ARM too.

Yeah that's probably what we should be looking into.

I gave QEMU a try (in my Linux VirtualBox ;)); after 26 hours of building (!), I finally have a LLVM 5.0.0. For other interested guys: I can recommend following https://translatedcode.wordpress.com/2016/11/03/installing-debian-on-qemus-32-bit-arm-virt-board/. I gave it 2 gigs of memory and 3 CPU cores (but QEMU itself seems to use only a single CPU host core).

[I'm mainly interested in running the testsuite and checking if there's something still missing.]

Follow-up: LDC 1.5 comes with an ARMv6 hard-float package for Linux again: https://github.com/ldc-developers/ldc/releases/tag/v1.5.0
It was built on Debian Jessie with gcc 4.9 and includes static/shared runtime libs, the LTO linker plugin and dub/rdmd/dustmite/ddemangle, that's why it's not exactly tiny.
For reference, building LDC in QEMU takes about 3 hours on my machine.

To spare others a few hours, I also uploaded the prebuilt LLVM 5.0.0 (without LLD): https://github.com/ldc-developers/llvm/releases/tag/ldc-v5.0.0
It was built with CMake variable LLVM_DEFAULT_TARGET_TRIPLE=arm-none-linux-gnueabihf in order to emit ARMv6 code by default, just like Debian's gcc. See https://github.com/ldc-developers/ldc/issues/1988 for context.

Can you add a link to the ldc page that links to an up to date walkthrough on how to properly(and easily) cross compile arm binaries with the examples?

(I want to create some open gl demo stuff but I can't find the resources)
