digitalmars.D.learn - Is dmc package still required?

I just updated to 2.074.0. I see there's still a README.TXT which 
tells me
(on windows) to download dmc, "which contains the linker and 
necessary libraries".

Is this out of date? I see a "link.exe" in the dmd package.
Granted it's a bit older, but do I care?
