Andy or any charitable soul who will come to my  aid.  I am having the problem below again. I don't know what to  set lib_gd_path to.
  #find / -name GD.so -print 
  gives me:
  Any help would be greatly appreciated.

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.
