digitalmars.D - d frontend to gcc on MacOS X

I'm interested in trying out d using MacOS X, but if I understand correctly, one
must basically recompile 
gcc to do this.  Is there a simpler way?

I just build a pkg for MacOS X, containing gcc-3.4.0 with support for 
the following languages:
- c
- c++
- d ( release: 1f )
- java
- fortran
- ada

At first I thought, it would be helpful, but that package is 77MB big, 
and probably runs only on MacOS X 10.3...
If anyone is interested in this file anyway, I will have to think of a 
way to distribute it (bittorrent, edonkey, etc.)

I will try to stay up to date with the packages. I am sharing the file on edonkey for now... ed2k://|file|gcc-3.4.0-1f.dmg.bz2|80790269|34B797CE97BD4FD9651971420FBDC1A0|/ It might be faster and probably more comfortable to compile it yourself though ;)

Thanks for going to this effort.

Any help with setting up edonkey would be desirable.  I've downloaded overnet
and fiddled around with 
this for a while.  I can search for files and that seems to be about it.  I've
tried downloading a couple of 
files without success, as it seems to perpetually look for the file.  I've tried
opening ports on my router/
firewall to make my status "open", with apparently no help.  Also, the file
referenced in this message 
doesn't show up in a search, but given that I can't download anything anyway,
that point is kind of 
moot.

Hopefully I'm doing something obviously wrong...

Thanks in advance for any help.

You will find the file at:

So you can forget about eDonkey for now. I wouldn't have been such a 
great help myself anyway. I wanted to use mldonkey 
(http://mldonkey.org), but when I try to download the file from another 
client, the download won't start...

I am very sorry, that it installs itself into /. Unfortunatly, I didn't 
have the time to fix it yet, and I guess it will have to wait until mid 
of June.
The package will install into the following directories:
/bin
/include
/info
/lib
/libexec
/man
/share
I guess all directories were created by the installer, except /bin.
In /bin you can do `ls -lrt` to see the directory sorted by date. The 
files in the installer were created "30 Apr 2:27". You can delete them 
or move them somewhere else. BE CAREFUL! You don't want to delete your 
/bin dir, like I did :) Luckily, I had a backup...
