Branch: PHP_4_3, updated at 03/17/2003.
Compiler: cc: Sun WorkShop 6 update 2 C 5.3 2001/05/15
OS: Solaris 8
GD version 2.0.11 placed in /usr/local
./configure \
    --with-gd=/usr/local --enable-gd-imgstrttf \
    --enable-gd-native-ttf --with-png-dir=/usr/local \
    --with-jpeg-dir=/usr/local \

Problem: If PHP try compile with system GD library, build break with this error:

ld: fatal: symbol `gdCacheCreate' is multiply-defined:
        (file ext/gd/gdcache.lo and file /usr/local/lib/libgd.a(gdcache.o));
ld: fatal: symbol `gdCacheDelete' is multiply-defined:
        (file ext/gd/gdcache.lo and file /usr/local/lib/libgd.a(gdcache.o));
ld: fatal: symbol `gdCacheGet' is multiply-defined:
        (file ext/gd/gdcache.lo and file /usr/local/lib/libgd.a(gdcache.o));

Solutions: Dirty hack...
