You can surely use Makefiles to compile your D code. DMD, druntime, and Phobos use Makefiles. :-D Though due to limitations with makefiles, I prefer to use SCons. I'd use dub as a package manager, but I find its limitations as a build manager too frustrating and a total deal-breaker for the kind of builds I need to do, so I generally avoid using it as such.
