Uhm, Gentoo is a source distribution. The outcome of a package
installation can depend on many things, such as used compiler,
enabled/disabled features for the package and compiler/linker flags.
That said, I am currently maintaining this ebuild (package
It is a continuation of the abandoned "d-overlay" ebuild and the dmd.conf
generation code originates from there. On a positive note, Ubuntu recently
had a problem with dmd when they switched to --as-needed, that does not
occur with the Gentoo ebuild, since --as-needed was already in use there
for a while.
Since I am not an expert with Gentoo ebuilds or executable linking, I did
not change the ebuild much and it works for me. The stack traces are in

resolved in dmd.conf for Gentoo, instead of the compiler itself, then I am
the one to bug.
Installation goes like this (assuming layman has been installed):
1. Add official external repository for wannabe packages:

2. Install latest dmd (needs to be unmasked in
