https://issues.dlang.org/show_bug.cgi?id=17880

          Issue ID: 17880
           Summary: Build of dlang.org affected by presence of ~/dmd.conf
           Product: D
           Version: D2
          Hardware: All
                OS: Linux
            Status: NEW
          Severity: normal
          Priority: P1
         Component: dlang.org
          Assignee: nobody puremagic.com
          Reporter: andrei erdani.com

To reproduce, create an empty file ~/dmd.conf and attempt to build dlang.org:

$ touch ~/dmd.conf
$ cd /path/to/dlang.org
$ make -f posix.mak
...
.generated/stable_dmd-2.072.2/dmd2/linux/bin64/dub build --single
--compiler=.generated/stable_dmd-2.072.2/dmd2/linux/bin64/dmd
assert_writeln_magic.d
Failed to invoke the compiler
.generated/stable_dmd-2.072.2/dmd2/linux/bin64/dmd to determine the build
platform: Error: cannot find source code for runtime library file 'object.d'
       dmd might not be correctly installed. Run 'dmd -man' for installation
instructions.
       config file: /home/andrei/dmd.conf
Specify path to file 'object.d' with -I switch

When dmd.conf contains (as is often the case) paths to some working
directories, the error messages become correspondingly more confusing.

When dub takes the --compiler switch, it should invoke the compiler with the
config found in its own path.
