Is there any language that native-compiles faster than D?

Of course not, but your benchmark is as tiny as it gets. ;)

For linking, a D main requires the _d_cmain template imported by
object.d, so you'll have to make it extern(C) in that case.

I don't think languages can be compared like that. One would
probably need a reasonably-sized non-contrived project and port
it to each language, exploiting the language features, but then
runtime and standard libraries would play a significant role as
well (object.d kinda already does).
Another strong suit of D, its module system and compiling
multiple modules at once, isn't reflected either.
