Good to hear it.  If you start having segfaults in ldc because of 
memory issues, you may want to look into whether gcc is actually 
working properly, by running its testsuite.  I built gcc from 
source from pkgbuild back then, or whatever it is they use to 
generate the sfe packages, and had problems with the binaries 
their gcc would compile.  I had to recompile gcc with another 
flag to get it to work right.

Hmm, for X86, I doubt much will have to be done, but then I can't 
say I messed with Solaris threading.

I'm sure Nordlöw is looking forward to it. :)
