"There is a multiple objects file option but for some reason it causes the project to fail with unresolved externals from TypeInfo.* so I have no idea if it actually does anything or not."

When trying the option to maybe speed of compilation I get a bunch of errors:

error LNK2001: unresolved external symbol "TypeInfo_S3std5range__T6RepeatTAyaZQm.__init" (_D37TypeInfo_S3std5range__T6RepeatTAyaZQm6__initZ)
phobos64.lib(timezone_342c_37a.obj) : error LNK2019: unresolved external symbol tzset referenced in function "nothrow @nogc @safe bool std.datetime.timezone.LocalTime.singleton().__lambda3()" (_D3std8datetime8timezone9LocalTime9singletonFNeZ9__lambda3FNbNiNfZb)
fatal error LNK1120: 81 unresolved externals

Compiles fine without the option.

That option enables "-multiobj" on the dmd command line. It's undocumented and mimicks what happens when building a library (but keeps the object files instead of packaging them into the library). I guess not all of these object files are linked in that case. I should remove that option.
