D.gnu - GDC 0.14 fails in fixproto on Mac

After some more digging, it seems like the reason the
GDC 0.14 building is failing on Mac OS X is because:

"fixprotos" is failing to run the "fix-header" filter
on the etc/c/zlib/zutil.h file... (Gotta love how those
pesky C/C++ header left-overs cripples the whole D build?)

This in turn seems to be because of differences in the
"find" command ? If you run "find ." on Linux, you get
./foo and ./bar - but on Mac OS X you get foo and bar...

This messes up the sed magic that comes later on in "fixprotos":
# Append "/"; remove initial "./". Hence "." -> "" and "sys" -> "sys/".
rel_source_prefix=`echo $rel_source_subdir | sed -e 's|$|/|' -e 's|^./||'`

Ouch! Looks like the good old "forgot to escape period" bug...

Results: (notice how the initial d/ was stripped)
+ rel_source_files=zutil.h
+ rel_source_file=3.3.6/etc/c/zlib/zutil.h

So it runs the "fix-header" with a non-existing file and it fails.
make[1]: *** [stmp-fixproto] Error 1
make: *** [all-gcc] Error 2

Wonder why this was all working OK, in the GDC 0.13 build ?
Anyway, GDC 0.14 is now compiling and should be up shortly...
