What would be nice, however, is to have these D-specific tools such as DVM, dub, … available in the distro repositories, preconfigured to fit the customs of the given system. This way, users could just do "yum install dvm dub" (or whatever other tools) to get a fully working D environment.

I don't know how it is for other distros, but the newest dmd and ldc version are available in the Archlinux's [community] repository while gdc and dub are available in the AUR, meaning you get a fully working D environment on Archlinux by doing
yaourt -S dmd dub
yaourt -S gdc dub
yaourt -S ldc dub
(you could use any pacman-wrapper other than yaourt, as well of course)

So far there isn't a dvm package (for Arch) that I can see, but if anyone where really interested he could do so, as the AUR anyone who registers an account may create (and maintain) new packages.
