Bug#641284: gdc broken on unstable due to gcc-4.4 update

Package: gdc
Version: 4.4.6-2
Severity: important

Current version of gdc in unstable is unuseable since the update to gcc-4.4 
(version 4.4.6-9) about 2 weeks ago. Attempting to compile any gdc source 
code (with no command line flags) results in the message

cc1d: warning: command line option "-imultilib" is valid for 
C/C++/Fortran/ObjC/ObjC++ but not for D

There is a comment about this in the gcc-4.4 Debian changelog, 

  * Break older gcj-4.4, gnat-4.4, gdc-4.4 versions, changed gcc_lib_dir.

but no explanation or fix so I guess the maintainers are aware of this. I am 
submitting a bug report to keep track of the problem.

The bug currently makes gdc unuseable and is delaying upload of packages 
which depend on gdc (I'm currently trying to upload a new version of plplot 
which includes support for the D language.)

I suspect from the comment that the bug also affects gcj-4.4 and gnat-4.4, 
but at least these are not the default versions of those compilers on most
