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.
