D.gnu - GDC support for non-windows

Looking at https://bitbucket.org/goshawk/gdc/downloads I see that every file is
compiled for windows and has no releases for any other platforms.  I assume
this is probably just an artifact of what the main developer(s) use, but it
makes me wonder.  How stable is GDC on other platforms?

It's mainly developed on Linux. There are compiled Windows versions because compiling it on windows is such a pain in the ass. If you're using another Platform (Linux/OSX/FreeBSD) compile it yourself or install it from your distributions repository (there are GDC packages for Debian and Ubuntu, for example. Only for D1, though) :) Cheers, - Daniel

I'm interested in D2 support under Ubuntu. I've compiled GDC from source in the past (before the project was resumed/forked). It took forever and had a lot of dependencies that I had to install, etc... Why is there a D1 package and not a D2 package?

As far as I remember, the dependencies are the same as GCC, which isn't actually that much. It takes a while if you don't specify "--disable-bootstrap" to keep GCC from building itself three times and verifying that the last two times are identical.
