Absolutely not. We just don't have a download package for it (this is

There are binaries for FreeBSD 32bit, but the dmd.conf file is still missing.

The libraries were not built correctly (my old machine runs out of memory building them). FreeBSD users have needed to, for some time now, fork/build to get it.

I've had a virtual machine setup at one point, but those things require
significant time to set up and to keep them from breaking (my virtual
machine setups all broke when I upgraded Ubuntu).

Personally I don't think it takes up so much time to setup, especially not for D
development. Just keep the customizations and non-default packages to a minimum.

Heck, I had spent considerable time just trying to figure out *which* virtual box to install. Each option came with a long list of caveats and things that didn't work. Some would work with one OS, some with another, the one I did download would kinda sorta work with NetBSD, but not really, etc. Then, of course, was having it all wiped out by upgrading Ubuntu.

It's not impossible to do. There's just a significant time sink involved in figuring out which one to get, getting it installed, getting it working, and keeping it working. It's actually easier to just buy another machine.
