I'm not sure where the appropriate place to ask about dub is. There
doesn't seem to be a newsgroup for it?

Anyways, I am wondering what the proper way to deal with external
non-D dependencies is. For example, libd-llvm uses a lot of libraries
from LLVM whose library path changes from machine to machine, and some
of the list of 30 libraries changes as well. They have a nice
configuration tool llvm-config which emits ldflags which are very nice
to use from makefiles but I don't see any way to obtain this
information from within the dub.json.

Do I essentially need to make an autotools-esque script to generate the
dub.json? That seems to be at odds with the ability to register
packages.

I'm not sure what the answer is but there is an official forum
which might yield some useful information.
