I tried this on a copy of a "bad" dmd repo I had left, and I still get a
messed up dmd.  Turns out, build.d apparently also uses some kind of
caching / timestamping system to determine when to build something, so I
had to delete the generated/ directory and rerun it before it did the
right thing.

I wish build.d would use content hashing for checking if a source file
has changed, rather than timestamping, or worse, apparently just the
existence of the target.
