digitalmars.D.announce - dmd.conf's -L--export-dynamic prevents my compiler from working

Speaking of issues that will frustrate newcomers... having dmd generate
executables that segfault would be particularly /bad/.

I refer to my post 19 on this bug:
http://d.puremagic.com/issues/show_bug.cgi?id=5278
(which is the most recent as of this writing.)

Stock DMD hasn't worked on my system for... let's see... a little over a
year now.

I just can't compile things with D unless I go through some strange
contortions.

The problem was introduced when -L--export-dynamic was placed in dmd.conf.

Unless there is an important reason for -L--export-dynamic to be there,
could we please remove it?  It makes my (usually awesome) D experience,
uh, suck!
(From my perspective it was unceremoniously added and then made my
compiler just spontaneously not work at all anymore.  Bad bad bad!)

Apologies, sent to wrong newsgroup on accident.
