digitalmars.D - Some questions about dmd development

Hello!
Sorry for my bad English.
I have some questions about dmd development:
1. What about support FreeBsd in dmd2?
2. Are there any plans to support Solaris and others OS?
3. Are there any plans to support 64-bits system? And if it is, 
when?

It seems the binary isn't included, you probably have to compile it yourself (It might be that it doesn't compile on freebsd, which is why there's no binary included).
 2. Are there any plans to support Solaris and others OS?

There was a patch that got included into dmd for solaris support I believe, I don't know if that's up to date or if you're able to compile dmd for solaris.
 3. Are there any plans to support 64-bits system? And if it is,

Most probably not as it's one heck of a task to add support for another architecture. I'm not sure where Walter stands on this, but my guess is it'll be a while until it happens (if it happens). For now your best bet if you want 64 bit support is LDC (I'd say the same for your question about other operating systems too, it's probably easier to get ldc working on other OSes than dmd), although it currently doesn't support D2.

I haven't done it yet because nobody has asked for it.

Yes (it's already there for D1, just not distributed as a binary), depending on requests.
 3. Are there any plans to support 64-bits system? And if it is,

Yes, after D2 is done.
