I'm trying to build my static c library and use it with my d 
I'm making a library as described here: 

My MS VS solution have file funcs.cpp:
#include <stdint.h>

int32_t myFunc(int32_t a, int32_t b)
	return a + b;
I'm build my library. Build is Release, target - x64. Got file 

Next I make app.d:
import std.stdio;

extern (C) int myFunc(int, int);

void main()
	writeln(myFunc(1, 2));

I put mylib.lib in root of my dub project:
dub.sdl  mylib.lib  source

E:\D\sl>cat dub.sdl
name "sl"
description "A minimal D application."
libs-windows "mylib"
libs-posix "mylib"
dflags "-O5" "-m64" "-release" "-w"

Next I'm trying to build my app:
E:\D\sl>dub build --build=release --compiler=ldc2

## Warning for package sl ##

The following compiler flags have been specified in the package 
file. They are handled by DUB and direct use in packages is 
Alternatively, you can set the DFLAGS environment variable to 
pass custom flags
to the compiler, or use one of the suggestions below:

-m64: Use --arch=x86/--arch=x86_64 to specify the target 
-release: Call dub with --build=release
-w: Use "buildRequirements" to control warning behavior

Performing "release" build using ldc2 for x86.
