Where would I find the gdc source?

Then rebuild gcc with the same options above above, but with

Would this option enable build for D1 or D2? Are we going to port only D2 (I know D2 is officially named D now)  or both?

D1 is officially deprecated in GDC; it won't be included in GCC.

Working on that, will post it on my project site this afternoon.

D2 only.  GDC with D1 had already been ported to all architectures that Debian supported at the time of gcc-4.4.  The release of gdc-4.6 marked the switch to D2 and the dropping of all supported architectures except x86 and x86_64.

I'll bite - I'm getting my feet wet again after being away from programming for a long absence, but I'd love to help out if I can.

I'm more of a Linux guy than an OSX man, but since my wife insists on using FaceTime to chat with me while we are apart, I'm stuck here in Apple-land! What can I do?

I've made a gdc-4.7 branch to whom's sources will be used for the packaging of gdc-4.7 and porting.

https://github.com/D-Programming-GDC/GDC/tree/gdc-4.7

Let us know if anyone hits any issues building and I'll try to help out best I can.
