Dear Kai,

I made some progress in identifying the Runtime build issue.

Basically version(LDC) && version(Win32) is true, but 
version(MinGW) isn't.

I tried a workaround, but MinGW is reserved I was not allowed to 
set it.
version( LDC )
//  version( Win32 )
//      version = MinGW;
     version( Win64 )
         version = MSVC_RUNTIME;

If I hack the file, so that the MinGW codepath is taken, then it 
compiles perfectly(until I hit the same issue in another file).

I haven't backtracked how 'version' is implemented yet, I guess 
the issue could originate all the way from cmake?

Best Regards,
Daniel N

PS Is there a switch to print the built-in versions? I couldn't 
find it.
