D.gnu - [Issue 38] New: gdc --version should indicate D version in use


             Bug #: 38
           Summary: gdc --version should indicate D version in use
    Classification: Unclassified
           Product: GDC
           Version: development
          Platform: x86_64
        OS/Version: All
            Status: NEW
          Severity: enhancement
          Priority: Low
         Component: gdc
        AssignedTo: ibuclaw gdcproject.org
        ReportedBy: joseph.wakeling webdrake.net

gdc --version currently only indicates the underlying GCC version, e.g.:

   gdc (GCC) 4.8.0 20130209 (experimental) [trunk revision 195917]

For clarity, it would be useful to also indicate the corresponding D version,
e.g. 2.062.  For comparison see the output of ldc2 --version:

   LDC - the LLVM D compiler (trunk):
     based on DMD v2.061 and LLVM 3.2
     Default target: x86_64-pc-linux-gnu
     Host CPU: corei7-avx

The same applies to gdmd --help.  When dmd --help is called, it indicates the D
version in use, e.g.:

   DMD64 D Compiler v2.062
