Is there a plan to port DMD to Darwin (the MacOS kernel)? I tried the linux
version, but I get a message 
that it cannot execute the binary file :(

You'll have to wait for the GCC front end. (check the D.gnu newsgroup) -- andy

I have personally tried compiling the GCC frontend of Mac OS X, but without
success.  It might still be possible, but will require significant hacking.
Feel free to try it though.

I have GCC 3.3 for MacOS X.3: it comes with Xcode. The install script for Xcode
is at (/Applications/Installers/Developer/) You should see some
"package"-looking file, and run that. Xcode will install, and with it so will
GCC and G++

I finally got the gcc front end built on OS X. Get the gdmd frontend source
from my web site
http://home.comcast.net/~benhinkle/gdmd-0.2.tar.gz
and get the GCC-3.4 source from one of the mirrors at
http://gcc.gnu.org/mirrors.html
You'll need bison-1.35 (my mac had bison-1.28). You can get that from GNU,
too. One little issue I had with bison is that I had to trim the link list
since 1.35 didn't seem to build out of the box. Again, it might be my setup.
Anyhow, once you get all that follow the instructions in the gdmd README and
you should be able to build.
Once it is built I had to
 setenv DYLD_LIBRARY_PATH <path to gcc build directory containing
libgcc_s.dylib>
and possibly also add that directory to the PATH as well. Also make sure you
put -L. on the gdmd command line so that crt2.o is found.

I'll keep plugging away at cleaning this stuff up, so stay tuned.
Good luck,
-Ben
