Oh, wow. I stopped maintaining Derelict years ago. That's why it 
no longer compiles. I added the note quite some time later. It 
was superseded by DerelictOrg, and that in turn was superseded by 
BindBC (which you've already discovered).

I should change that message in the Derelict repository to point 
people to bindbc. Sorry about that.
