Which platform are you running building on? I just tested on Arch 
Linux 64-bit with the following:

rdmd src/build.d

And it produced a binary with the following output for `dmd 

DMD64 D Compiler v2.088.0-240-gaf585f61a

I also tried the same on Windows 10 64-bit and it worked with the 
same results.
