D.gnu - Exceptions don't work in FreeBSD port of gdc

Exceptions don't work in FreeBSD port of gdc, throw leads straight to abort():

% gdc --version

% cat test.d 
import std.stdio;

void main() {
        try  {
                throw new Exception("test");
        } catch (Exception e) {
        }
}
% gdc test.d 
% ./a.out 
[1]    98829 abort      ./a.out

I'm not very familiar with D and gdc, so I don't have an idea what may be the
cause. There's nothing related to exceptions in the port as well. So how do I
enable them?
Please feel free to ask for any additional info.

I'm having this problem with OpenMW. Dmitry and myself are currently working
together to port openmw to FreeBSD, but it's a bit fragile if exceptions don't
work.

Can anyone confirm that this does or doesn't happen on FreeBSD? Is there any
reason why gdc's exceptions shouldn't work on other unix systems? (How do they
work really?)

I just want to know if we are doing something obviously wrong, before filing a
bug report.
