IIRC, it's /D/ in Fijian.

Who has /g/ for |c|?

Are there that many? I can only think of /k/, /S/, /tS/, /x/ ([X],
[C]). I imagine it could be used for /ts_h/ _vel sim_ but am not sure
whether that's a digraph, then, or simply a combination of |c| + |h|
(depends on the phonotactics (phonology?) of the language in question,
I suppose).
