Packaging Tips

File Locations

Libraries

D packages must install assemblies to %{_d_libdir} rather than /usr/lib or %{_datadir}.

Header

D package must install header file like .d or .di to %{_d_includedir}/%{name}

Libraries

At this time in D programming only OS X support shared lirbraries. So wait this feature or help ldc project. Feel free.
For build static librarie in D you need use ar and ranlib tools. ldc compiler support GNU strip.
short example from makefile:

DC=ldc
HD=-Hd $(IMPORT_DEST)
DFLAGS_REQ=-c -I ../DerelictUtil
AL_SRC= \
    derelict/openal/al.d \
    derelict/openal/alfuncs.d \
    derelict/openal/altypes.d   
    
PACKAGE_PATH=derelict/openal

all : DerelictAL

$(LIB_PRE)DerelictAL.$(LIB_EXT) :
	$(DC) $(DFLAGS) $(DFLAGS_REQ) $(AL_SRC) $(HD)/$(PACKAGE_PATH)
	$(AR) rcs $@ $^
	$(RANLIB) $@
	$(CP) $@ $(LIB_DEST)
	$(RM) $@

Macros

All D package need ldc for build and macro file is in ldc package, every package must have ldc in BuildRequire

Compiler options

%{_d_optflags} need be used for ldc options
%{_d_optflags} define options -release -w -g -O2
-release disables asserts, invariants, contracts and boundscheck
-w enable warnings
-g generate debug information
-O2 for make a good optimisation

Include directories

%{_d_includedir} need be used for devel file
%{_d_includedir} define /usr/include/d/ directory

Lib directories

%{_d_libdir} lib directory path used for static library (and later i hope shared library) %{_d_libdir} define /usr/lib64/d or /usr/lib/d directory

SPEC

Tips

If you package do not contain a shared library but only static library you shoul write at top of spec file:

%global debug_package %{nil}

Because GNU strip can't extract debug symbols from static lib achieves.

Template

here an template for D package with static libraries

%global debug_package %{nil}
