Pretty confusing

I don't know why but modifying  sc.ini  does the job for me:

DFLAGS="-I%@P%\..\import;%@P%\..\import\dwt-win" -version=Tango 
-defaultlib=tango-base-dmd.lib -debuglib=tango-base-dmd.lib 

my win xp directory structure :

I use hg within these (adequate) directories.

I can also imagine that Bill is using Tango + Tangobos. Means probabely 
this causes the problem.

However, I am not a dsss fan and I am actually in contact with some 
OCaml folks in order to teach OMake D imports. Not a solution for 
everyone, of course.
