First of all make sure which dwt you use. See my posting "DWT and all 
those projects".

If you want to use "dwt", it works on windows/phobos only. Then i am not 
your man. The "test_gridlayout.d" seems to be taken from this project. 
Because of that it also has dependencies to windows and phobos.

If you want to try the port I am working on, look for the projects 
dwt-win/dwt-linux. But they are both in very early stage. If this is 
your very first contact with D, the project is probably not mature 
enough to be useful for you.

Nevertheless, if you want to give it a try you need these:

1.) dmd 1.025 (not 1.026 nor 2.x)
2.) install tango and check if the tango examples are working.
3.) you need a build tool, not only the bare compiler. I use 'dsss' 
(v0.75) for all the stuff. Check if you can build tango examples with dsss.
4.) Checkout the sources with mercurial (hg clone/pull/update) dwt-win 
or dwt-linux and the dwt-samples
5.) in dwt-samples you can run "dsss build 

I hope this helps.
