I have had problems with the linker when trying to link GDC and MSC objects together. You lose the debug info for one or the other world. You can't have dwarf and cv8/pdb together. And to be useful, there would need to be some visual studio integration for dwarf debugging :/
Linking problems aside, if GDC on Windows produces proper DWARF debug info, you can debug the GDC compiled code with GDB and a graphical frontend such as DDT+CDT, you don't need Visual Studio. But, like you said, the Windows/MingW port of GDC is not maintained so it's all just theoretical as things stand.
