oh cool I didn't know that, is there a standard path to where these conf files are though?

The D frontend (and therefore all compilers) already has code to print the import paths. Unfortunately this code is only used when an import is not found:
test.d:1:8: Fehler: module a is in file 'a.d' which cannot be read
 import a;
import path[0] = /usr/include/d
import path[1]
= /opt/gdc/lib/gcc/x86_64-unknown-linux-gnu/4.9.4/include/d

It should be trivial though to refactor this code and add a command-line switch to dump the import path. See Module::read in dmodule.c. If Walter opposes adding this to DMD (one more command line switch!) we could probably still add it to GDC glue. This code is all you need:

if (global.path)
    for (size_t i = 0; i < global.path->dim; i++)
        const char *p = (*global.path)[i];
fprintf(stderr, "import path[%llu] = %s\n", (ulonglong)i, p);

Even better!
But when this is rejected,
one could also trigger it by feeding a deliberate wrong file to the compiler... Another option is to build a simple hello.d with the -v flag which will reveal the location of the binary the location of the config file used and also the import paths and lib paths so it seems.
