using D with C++

Hi, I'm trying to use C/C++ functions in a D program but I cant get
it to compile.
I tried the exemple of digital mars's website:

// ---- file.cpp
#include <iostream>
using namespace std;
int foo(int i, int j, int k)
    cout << "i = " << i << endl;
    cout << "j = " << j << endl;
    cout << "k = " << k << endl;
    return 7;

// ---- main.d
extern (C++) int foo(int i, int j, int k);
void main()

and a makefile that might not be correct now that i've experimented
various things on it:

OBJ= main.o file.o

all: ${OBJ}
	g++ ${OBJ}

bin/main.o: file.o
	dmd main.d

	g++ -c file.cpp -o file.o

I get this error:

nico at nical-netbook:~/Programmation/D/test binding$ make
g++    -c -o file.o file.cpp
g++ main.o file.o -o test
/usr/lib/gcc/i486-linux-gnu/4.4.1/../../../../lib/crt1.o: In
function `_start':

main.o: In function `no symbol':
main.d:(.text+0x8): undefined reference to `_Dmodule_ref'
collect2: ld returned 1 exit status
make: *** [all] Erreur 1

thanks in advance
