Just packaging GDC? Or do you plan to have third party development libraries packaged too?

just GDC for now, no plans for libs at the moment.

The defaults install everything into a version and multiarch specific directory.  This allows having any arbitrary number of versions installed, both native and cross compilations.  You probably want a very good reason to change that.

For me everything ends up in normal bin, lib, include, libexec and share directories under whatever I put as prefix, which `configure --help` informs me defaults to /usr/local. I only get the version/multiarch stuff as a prefix in the names of copies of the main executables in bin.

To be honest, this is all such a pain I think i'll just let gdc do whatever it wants to in a separate directory and then symlink the bits that the user actually needs access to using whatever directories and naming I want.

Optionally, you can see how gcc is configured  (gcc --verbose) and use the same "Configured with" options, this is so all sysroot/prefix/etc... match up.
