There you go. D2, run build.debug.sh to build. Modify the script to add 
options and the like. Built with `-gc` list _Dmain or break _Dmain 
doesn't work, if you force a segfault (remove the comments from the 
first few lines of ator.main and compile with -noboundscheck to cause 
one) bt doesn't work, etc, etc.
