Please support more architectures #1636

On Debian, gdc is able to support a few more architectures than LDC.
In order to compile most D packages with LDC in Debian, it would be really awesome if we could provide the same amount if architecture support as gdc does.
At time, all the architectures D seems to work on are:

  • amd64 (supported)
  • armel
  • armhf (fails with "Illegal instruction", log)
  • arm64
  • i386 (supported)
  • x32
  • ppc64el (supported, only LDC, broken with GDC)

x32 support should be rather cheap, and having full support for ARM architectures would be pretty neat.
Thank you & kind regards,

P.S: For the build status of LDC itself on Debian, see (x32 might only need bootstrapping...)

Afaik, these should all be fairly completely supported once we get real cross-compilation right. That's to be expected for LDC v1.2.

ARM64 requires updates to druntime/Phobos because of 128 bit reals.

I currently do not understand why armel and powerpc have problems building the compiler. ppc64 is not enabled but also supported by ldc.

The segfault with armhf requires more analysis. Could also be an LLVM bug, who knows.
