My thought would be that libdyld.dylib is statically linked to its __arm__ stubbed tlv_initializer so my modified version can't override.

I looked at your sources. I think you should turn the softfp changes and the iOS-ABI into pull requests for ldc.

The softfp change ok, the iOS abi, not yet.  There is at least a C calling convention problem to fix first.  A small struct (e.g. struct A {int x;}) should be returned in r0 instead of as an sret.

I still owe you the longdouble changes I needed to get it to compile in my env.  I am not using it in my ios branch right now, but I plan to swap to it now that I have a unittest pass/fail baseline.

It's mostly segfaults, several modules segfault when their tests are run.  I'm guessing this is because of some ABI issue.  I believe most Android/ARM systems are softfp, so testing on linux/ARM-hardfp is probably worthless anyway.  I need to try softfp on a softfp system and see what happens.

OK, will look at that when I get the tests not to segfault. :)

I added two Xcode projects to https://github.com/smolt/ldc-iphone-dev.

- helloD to simple demos of D on iOS device
- unittester to run druntime/phobos unittests

I also add more words to the repo README that I hope better explains things.
