I visited the source forge page, downloaded about 5 of the 10 files, and 
balked.  It looks like I have to assemble a puzzle.  Is there an easier 
way to get a D compiler and debugger onto my mac?

Sure. Tell Apple to stop making everything *almost* Unix-compatible ;)

Here are instructions and download links: http://www.dsource.org/projects/tango/wiki/MacOSXInstall But they are for 10.4 and 10.5 don't know if they work with 10.3. They are bundled with tango.

The builds for Mac OS X 10.3 were stopped, mostly since GCC 3.3 is no longer supported for GDC and also because templates were never working properly in the first place... So you probably need to upgrade to Mac OS X 10.4 and GCC 4 ? But if you don't need any modern features (nor newer versions) of D, then you should be able to use the old GCC 3.3.6 build: http://prdownloads.sourceforge.net/gdcmac/gdc-0.21-mac-10.3.dmg --anders
