digitalmars.D - Linker error cross compiling for raspberry pi

I am using ubuntu, trying to cross compile a d application for 
Raspberry pi.

I installed the "gdc-8-arm-linux-gnueabihf" package, but now when 
I try to compile, I get a linker error:

trying to cross-compile this:
---
import std.stdio;

void main()
{
   writeln("Hello, Pi!");
}

But when I compile (using the command `arm-linux-gnueabihf-gdc-8 
main.d`) I get this error:

It looks like you're missing a dependency, probably zlib? You should be able to install the zlib-dev package to resolve this. -Doc

Hm, there is no zlib-dev package, but there is zlib1g-dev, which was already installed. Any other ideas? Thanks so much

For armhf, your desired target architecture?

I don't think there is a prebuilt one for armhf. I am going to try cross compiling zlib.

Something like this should work: sudo dpkg --add-architecture armhf sudo apt-get update sudo apt-get install zlib1g-dev:armhf

Hm, I am getting a bunch of 404 errors now when running 'apt update'.
