I am a user of MacOS maybe once per year, but I'll help as I can.

I know ldc is available on homebrew, don't know about gdc. I get the impression that home-brew is much more widespread than macports.

 macports.
I stayed with MacPorts because I stopped using OSX, now that MacPorts uses binary packages whenever it can, there seems no reason to up sticks and change for a system I rarely use (except for testing SCons support for D, which is what this is all about deep down). I think the right strategy is to make sure DMD, LDC, GDC, and Dub are available on as many systems as possible. --=20 Russel. =3D=3D=3D=3D=3D=3D=3D=3D=3D=3D=3D=3D=3D=3D=3D=3D=3D=3D=3D=3D=3D=3D=3D=3D=3D= =3D=3D=3D=3D=3D=3D=3D=3D=3D=3D=3D=3D=3D=3D=3D=3D=3D=3D=3D=3D=3D=3D=3D=3D=3D= =3D=3D=3D=3D=3D=3D=3D=3D=3D=3D=3D=3D=3D=3D=3D=3D=3D=3D=3D=3D=3D=3D=3D=3D=3D= =3D=3D Dr Russel Winder t: +44 20 7585 2200 voip: sip:russel.winder ekiga.n= et 41 Buckmaster Road m: +44 7770 465 077 xmpp: russel winder.org.uk London SW11 1EN, UK w: www.russel.org.uk skype: russel_winder
