Sorry, I forgot to say, you cannot currently build it without special configuration. I'll upload a build script later.

I just meant running the executables and see what errors you get. I see that I missed to upload some files, I'll fix that.

I also want to take the opportunity to thank Iain Buclaw and Adam D Ruppe for making this possible!

Stay tuned

These are the steps you need to follow:

1. Download MSYS2 (https://www.msys2.org/) or "choco install msys2" if you have chocolatey

2. Start msys2 and paste the following:
wget https://gist.githubusercontent.com/Imperatorn/7d37f22140ea5b2c80dee5a86ffff2a3/raw/761ea945c28586f5c6bbc2e09d93a27383701da8/build.sh && ./build.sh

3. Wait :)

4. Pray...

5. Celebrate!? The build script has hopefully run and will open the bin directory with explorer

Very good job. I am playing around with it. I am not so much familiar with GDC. Looks like there is no something like "rdmd" in /opt/mingw64/bin? I want to test it to build dub.

I think there should be a gdmd executable. My compilations process did not yield one.

Did you succeed in building?

Very good job. I am playing around with it. I am not so much familiar with GDC. Looks like there is no something like "rdmd" in /opt/mingw64/bin? I want to test it to build dub.

Yes. "hello world" compiles and runs. Now I am trying to compile dub. I found https://github.com/D-Programming-GDC/GDMD. but I decided to use dub for building dub with
somefolder/bin/dub.exe build --compiler=gdc which is easier for me.

it complained about missing d21 executable. So, I copied it (~430 mb) from gcc-source/build/gcc into /opt/mingw64/bin which is in my $PATH.

Now it says:

dub 1.25.0+commit.17.g79e312d0: building configuration "application"...
d:/msys64/opt/mingw64/bin/../lib/gcc/x86_64-w64-mingw32/11.0.1/../../../../x86_64-w64-mingw32/bin/ld.exe: cannot find -lcurl
collect2.exe: error: ld returned 1 exit status

I have curl, libcurl, libcurl-devel, etc. installed though:

I can take a look in a couple of hours, in the meantime, read this:

The below is the output of "gdc -print-search-dirs" command. As you can see, there are search paths beginning with "d:/msys64". I think they should be /d/msys64 or just /msys64 in msys2. That is the problem.

Did you install msys on D:? Does it work if you manually supply -L?

Actually, I did a workaround by supplying the LIBRARY_PATH manually. Now curl is found. But I am having some linker errors related to winsockets (missing symbols). I will share the linker errors when I back home.
