The advice here is for dwt... not dsss, not tango.  If you get help with 
that, bonus for you.

Concerning the phobos entry in tango-posix-dmd, earlier versions of the 
compiled tango core library had to be renamed libphobos.a because of a 
compiler limitation. More recent versions of the dmd compiler added a 
switch that allowed one to identify a core library of a different name 
with the "-defaultlib" switch.  So naming it phobos above was and still 
is a valid install, as long as you have actually installed tango this way.

Furthermore, you've shown in another post that there were problems that 
were completely unrelated to dwt but rather were due to faults in your 
installation and system.  Throughout your many posts, you were wrong to 
assume that it was the fault of this forum or of the members that were 
trying to help.  Your reactions of disgust and rudeness were also wrong. 
  The fact that those who responded to your posts answered so graciously 
is quite amazing.
