digitalmars.D - Creating a shared library in D : undefined symbol: _deh_beg

I just created a shared library in D using DMD in Ubuntu and run 
into the following error when trying to use it

   undefined symbol: _deh_beg

I found this old thread where it is suggested to create a dummy 
main method : 
http://lists.puremagic.com/pipermail/digitalmars-d/2007-October/026970.html

I did that and it fixed the error, but it doesn't seem quite 
right.

My DMD call looks like this

   dmd -shared -fPIC <DFILES HERE> -I../src -ofbeep.so

The compiler is able to generater position independant code but as far
as I remember, there are still some issues in druntime which make it
difficult to create dynamic librarys in D. You need to somehow
initialize the runtime.

As far as I know the runtime is not ready for shared libraries yet. -- /Jacob Carlborg
