you can use `dub build $name` to build the package. The resulting 
binary should be in $HOME/.dub/$name-$version/$name/bin then. You 
can also run the binary via `dub run $name -- $additional_args`, 
then you won't have to add that path to your PATH. If you haven't 
run `dub build $name` previously, `dub run $name` will do that 
for you.
