on the wiki, it says it's not supported... what does this mean? I'd at some point like to build 64bit, will it ever be possible in the reasonably near future?

It's being worked on, will be available by next year:

I'm looking forward...I miss the possibility of compiling programs in D for Odroid C2.

LDC is currently the compiler farthest along the way to AArch64 support (because I put some work into it a while ago). Two main things need implementing still: The D interface to variadic arguments (passing them works fine, but the va_arg!() template doesn't yet), and 128 bit real support in some parts of the formatting code (which depends on either having the (u)cent types available, or a minor rewrite).

Do get in touch if you feel like helping out – all the basics are in place (with my patch from the issue linked earlier) and the test suite mostly passes, so it should be relatively easy to get started.

Best,
David

Thanks for the link, interesting post, good to see AArch64 performance is comparable to x64.  I've had this Anandtech overview of that chip open in Chrome for months, haven't finished reading it yet:
