I'm not sure I'm following all that's going on here.  Have you tried 
adding "-I../dwt-linux" to your dsss command line?  If dwt-linux is 
installed using dsss, then this addition is not necessary.  But if not, 
you will need to provide the path to dsss like so:

dsss build -I../dwt-linux

This assumes five things:

1) that you want to build all the examples

2) that dsss (version 0.75) is properly installed and setup to use dmd 
(version 1.025) and tango (svn version 3152)

3) that you type this command from the dwt-linux-examples directory you made

4) that dwt-linux is in the parent directory.

5) that you haven NOT done a "dsss build dwt" and "dsss install dwt" in 
the dwt-linux directory first. (If you did the dsss "build" and 
"install" then there would be no need to go to all this trouble, but 
sometimes there are unidentified conflicts due to dsss, dmd, and tango 
being setup/installed incorrectly by the user.)

This is the trouble with trying to learn/use four different technologies 
each with the potential to be setup incorrectly.  If dmd, tango, dsss, 
and dwt were all distributed together with a valid setup, I suppose 
these things wouldn't be an issue. Tango tries to fix this sort of 
problem with its release packages which include a pre-configured 
compiler and Tango library ready-to-go.
