I have a newly installed debian machine, and installed dmd_2.061-0_i386.deb
with all the dependencies.
When i launch the command 
# rdmd bug.d
is ok, but then when i launch the command:
# rdmd -unittest bug.d
the output is:
/usr/bin/ld: cannot find -lcurl
collect2: ld returned 1 exit status
--- errorlevel 1
The file bug.d is something like this:
# cat bug.d

import std.stdio;

void main(string[] args)
{
    ubyte[1] first;
    ubyte[1] second;

    writeln( "Fatto!" );
    // Lets the user press <Return> before program stops
    stdin.rawRead( first );
}

so i don't know why it searches for libcurl. I tried to install it anyway with
# apt-get install libcurl3
but then it popups the same error.
When i run
# dmd -unittest bug.d
it compile without errors and creates the right executable, i tried to run it
and is fine, so i think the problem is in rdmd that try to link a library that
is unnecessary and it searches it on the wrong path. I checked that libcurl.so
is present in the /usr/lib directory, so ld must find it. On another amd64
machine with dmd_2.061-0_amd64.deb installed i tried the rdmd command with the
unittest option and it shows the same error.
If there is a need for more info, just ask.

TIA
