I couldn't have understood your question very well, but some 
information is here.

You create .a static library file with "-lib" flag while 
compiling. Yesterday I did it.

dmd mylib.d -lib

This will generate mylib.a.

You can later use this static library while compiling another d 

dmd main.d mylib.a

Pass the .a file directly as it is another source.

I have never tried these with GDC, but I don't think it is much 
different at all.
