D - D for other architectures?

assumably the Linux 
compiler would generate ELF executables, but on OS X they would need to be
Mach-O.

If you came here from my article, I suggest checking the D for GCC reference at
the end.  That'll take you to the D.gnu newsgroup here, where a GCC frontend for
D is underway.  And yes, it does currently compile on OS X.

The GCC frontend for D can generate PPC binaries, and works on OS X albiet with rather limited functionality. thanks -mike
