Why do you need the vibe executable? In general it got replaced with dub, just run your project with:
dub --rdmd

"After the installation, you can run any vibe.d application by typing 'vibe' from inside the application's root directory."


When running dub:

Building configuration application, build type debug
Running rdmd...
/usr/bin/ld: cannot find -levent
/usr/bin/ld: cannot find -levent_pthreads
collect2: error: ld returned 1 exit status
--- errorlevel 1
Error: Build command failed with exit code 1

I haven't edited my app.d yet, it's a skeleton app right now.
