GDC and LDC are already part of the Debian archive.  I don't know what's
the migration status, but I'd imagine it's just a matter of time (if it
hasn't already happened) before it percolates down to all the Debian
derivatives. Just:

	apt-get install gdc


	apt-get install ldc

and you're good to go.

Don't know about the RPM-based distros, I'd imagine somebody has also
made packages for that by now.
