Is there a large speed difference in compilation time depending on whether the DMD used is built using DMD or LDC?

I would be shocked if there weren't.
i did that out of curiosity some time ago, but with gdc, and then tested my projects, and phobos rebuilding. speed difference was so small that it can be a usual random deviation.

yet i didn't tried ldc, maybe ldc does better. but dmd itself doesn't use ranges extensively, so i don't think that it really matters.

that is, maybe in some corner cases the difference will be noticable, but most of the time building dmd with ldc/gdc means only "let's wait significantly longer for nothing".
