The implicit conversion from D array to pointer has been removed in 0.177. 
All you need to do is add ".ptr" to convert from arrays to pointers now. 
Though since you have no way of knowing whether or not the passed-in strings 
are zero-terminated, you should use toStringz whenever passing D strings to 
C functions.

return toString(getenv(toStringz(pSymbol)));
