I might be doing some number crunching on one of the power8 
beasts, would be nice to have D working there.

Not that bad afaik. LDC should be able to build itself, the runtime libs and their unittests, but a bunch of tests fail. Little-endian could be working pretty well out of the box, but Phobos doesn't fully support big-endian architectures (at least last time I checked). See https://github.com/ldc-developers/ldc/issues/1909. [The initial problems for that guy were due to a faulty host compiler; make sure to bootstrap LDC via latest ltsmaster branch.]
