Yes, you can find the path to the binary, or at least the command being run (if
its a symlink) by searching the PATH.  I think DMD already must do this,
because argv[0] is pretty much what's available to find the executable
directory in the first place.

Often, I have several dmd2 compilers that I want to test because I'm working on
bugs in phobos or because I want to know where a regression happened. 
Currently, I have to specify the full path to the exe, it would be nice to just
have them all live in the same directory, and I could then put that dir in my

So your original solution wouldn't work for this.
