I think that it's included inside of libphobos.a now, and has been for a few releases. The libraries are still separate, and you can build them separately, but from what I can tell, it looks like phobos ends up including the druntime stuff in itself when you build it. So, having a separate libdruntime.a would be kind of pointless unless you were specifically trying to avoid linking in any Phobos stuff, which would be highly abnormal, and in which case you could build druntime yourself. But Sean or someone else who's been involved in that build process may have a better answer as to what exactly is going on now and why. - Jonathan M Davis

Figures, but I thought I looked in libphobos and didn't see druntime symbols.. oh well. And yeah, it's been a few releases since I've needed to build my own rpms

Since Phobos depends on druntime and both libraries are statically linked I think libdruntime.a has never been needed. It's never been listed in dmd.conf/ini as far as I know. -- /Jacob Carlborg

Well, I haven't actually gone so far as to look at the symbols in the library, but there is no libdruntime.a - only a libphobos.a - and it works. And if you build phobos, you still need to build druntime first. So, really, the only way that it could really work from what I can see is that libphobos.a includes the stuff from libdruntime.a in it. Why or how, I don't know. - Jonathan M Davis
