I've always used the .zip and found it to be the easiest way (and 
btw, don't follow the terrible installation instructions, just 
unzip it and use right out of the box).

$ wget blah/dmd.version.zip
$ unzip dmd.version.zip
$ dmd2/src/linux32/bin/dmd hello.d

You can of course also add that to your $PATH or use a wrapper 
script or whatever so you can refer to it easier.

That has consistently worked for me for many years. You can 
install it in /opt or in your own $HOME (my preference, so I 
don't even have to bother with root).
