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