The currently intended way is to augment your LDC config file on 
a per-triple basis. See step 4 in Use `ldc2 -mtriple=... -v` to check the real triple (displayed in the config line), in your case probably `arm--linux-gnueabihf`, and add a config file section for it, by copying the default section and tweaking the lib directories. Specifying a compatible `-mtriple` in the LDC command line is then enough.
I don't use dub, so I don't know what's missing for full 
cross-compilation support.

It's already built-in for Windows MSVC targets since LDC v1.3 
(`-link-internally` switch). I opened a PR to integrate LLD for 
ELF and Mach-O targets as well: It's completely 
untested, so guys like you experimenting with it are very 
welcome. Needs LLVM >= 5.0 incl. LLD.
