I would like to be able to generate binaries that don't depend on any external
libraries whatsoever. In linux at least, when dmd creates a program normally,
the resulting binary depends on various system libraries. For instance, hello
world ends up with these dependencies per ldd:

linux-gate.so.1 =>  (0xb783b000)
libpthread.so.0 => /lib/libpthread.so.0 (0xb77fd000)
libm.so.6 => /lib/libm.so.6 (0xb77d8000)
libc.so.6 => /lib/libc.so.6 (0xb768c000)
/lib/ld-linux.so.2 (0xb783c00


Want I want, is for ldd to say

not a dynamic executable


The way to get this happen normally is to give gcc the linker flag -static. If
I compile object files with dmd and then link with gcc using -static, then I
can get a static binary. However, if I try and both build and link with dmd, it
fails. If I run

dmd prog.d -L-static

(which as I understand it, is passes the -static flag on to gcc for the linking
phase), I get the error

/usr/bin/ld: cannot find -lgcc_s
collect2: ld returned 1 exit status
--- errorlevel 1

Why having dmd use gcc to do the linking instead of my doing it directly fails
to work, I don't know, but it's rather annoying. I shouldn't have to do the
linking myself to get a static binary.
