program.d in 7zip

I have create a target generating D for my project jtransc:
So it allows to convert Java/Kotlin/Scala AOT into D and generate native
In complex programs, the generated D file is pretty big. And in order to get
comprehensive stacktraces in debug builds I have to add -gc. The big test suite
including most of the java standard library generates a ~6MB d file. Without
the -gc switch DMD works just fine and generates the executable.

dmd --version
DMD32 D Compiler v2.072.0

dmd -gc program.d
Error: linker exited with status 482878712
