I started a new Docker instance and tried this:

docker run -i -t ubuntu:16.10 /bin/bash
apt-get update
apt-get install git curl gcc g++ unzip
git clone
git clone
git clone
cd dmd
make -j8 -f posix.mak  AUTO_BOOTSTRAP=1
cd ../phobos
make -j8 -f posix.mak

Everything builds just fine!
As mentioned on a different ticket of yours, I believe it's still 
an issue with your setup and most likely an outdated DMD binary 
in `dmd`.
In case you think this isn't the case, please provide a proper 
bug report.

Moreover, as Martin has stated it before ranting here isn't a 
nice behavior, especially if it's _not_ our fault and "nothing" 
just refers to your build setup.
