That's because the compilation doesn't actually load the library to 
use.  It's the test that tries to pull it in.

Here's how we build it on our dev server:

alester at blitz[/usr/src]$ cat config.GD

perl Makefile.PL -lib_gd_path="/usr/local/lib" -options="PNG"

If you don't keep configs in a config.whatever file in your /usr/src 
directory, do so.  You WILL need them again.
