digitalmars.D - Build Linux shared library from DMD

In the Apache mod_d thread I saw:

gcc -shared -Wl,-soname,libhello.so.0 -o libhello.so.0.0 libhello.a

Has anyone tried this with libphobos2.a?

Phobos cannot currently be used as a dynamic library. DMD cannot produce correct PIC for building dynamic libraries. -- /Jacob Carlborg

correct PIC for building dynamic libraries.

GDC can build shared library (phobos works, too), but currently not DMD, it seems. Please see that other thread for more details.
