digitalmars.D - FreeBSD compile issue

Hi,
    I need to compile a D program in FreeBSD. I've followed the 
FreeBSD instructions. So far, dmd is creating the obj file, but 
there appears to be a problem with the linker. The error messages 
are very cryptic. I was hoping someone might have an idea what 
they mean and what I'm doing wrong here.

<CODE>
$ more hello.d
import std.stdio;

int main(string[] args)
{
     writefln("Hello World\n");
         return 0;

Can you check, whether dmd is explicitly linking with -pthread? It might an issue of libkse vs. libthr? https://github.com/freebsd/freebsd/blob/0680c1f5fe159bba69a242568af0db7d7dc15a79/lib/libthr/thread/thr_clean.c#L49 We're building the binary releases on FreeBSD 8.4, so upgrading might help too.

That is a very old FreeBSD release. dmd from ports doesn't even compile for anything less than FreeBSD 8. I suggest you at least upgrade to 7-stable, better another release branch completely.

Thanks for the info. The issue is a FreeBSD 6.2 system that 
unfortunately can't be upgraded. Do you think it will run if it's 
compiled on an x86 FreeBSD 8.4 system and moved to the 6.2 system?

No idea, all I know is that dmd in ports was disabled on FreeBSD/7 years ago: http://svnweb.freebsd.org/ports?view=revision&revision=267685 Maybe you can patch dmd or whatever else is necessary to get it working on older FreeBSD versions.
