During the run of "configure", the presence of the graphics
library "GD" is checked automatically - if not found,
support is not included (so it doesn't appear in the
build-defs.h file).

The problem is that if the GD library exists in a non-standard
place, there is no override option on the command-line to
"configure" for checking for the library elsewhere!  :-(

Unfortunately I don't know any autoconf syntax to be able to
supply a diff with an arg added for locating GD elsewhere.

Straight from the FAQ:

When I run configure, it says that it can't find the include files or library for gdbm (or some other package)! 
           You can make the configure script looks for header files and libraries in non-standard locations by specifying 
           additional flags to pass to  the C preprocessor and linker, such as: 

                       CPPFLAGS=-I/path/to/include LDFLAGS=-L/path/to/library ./configure
           If you're using a csh-variant for your login shell (why?), it would be: 

                       env CPPFLAGS=-I/path/to/include LDFLAGS=-L/path/to/library ./configure
