how to I go about to find out here did I mess up?
there is a struct GtkTreeIter on module gtktypes on package gtkc.

seems to exist on gtkd.lib:
grep _D38TypeInfo_PS4gtkc8gtktypes11GtkTreeIter6__initZ *.lib
Binary file gtkd.lib matches

here is the link command:

C:\devel\Duit\trunk\gtkD>link  obj\installer\ui\Exec.obj

gtkd.lib(TreeIter)
 Error 42: Symbol Undefined _D38TypeInfo_PS4gtkc8gtktypes11GtkTreeIter6__initZ

That just means gtkd.lib contains that string. That doesn't mean it defines the symbol. In fact, in this case it looks like it only *uses* the symbol without it being defined anywhere (that the linker can find), producing your error. You may want to find out what library includes the module gtkc.gtktypes and add that to the linker commandline.
