Yep, at least running the tests on Phobos fails due to changes in
binutils 2.28, see this bug report for more details:

AFAIK this bug should have been fixed. However, IIRC 2.073.2 or
2.074 as host compiler is required.

Hehe, that's nearly not possible. Since a couple of months
there's an ongoing effort to change the directory layout to
src/ddmd, which is been blocked by necessary changes the
Travis doesn't support newer distros easily as well, but e.g.
CircleCi 2 does as they have native integration with Docker:
PRs are welcome ;-)
