I compile libpng 1.0.8, zlib, and gd 1.8.3

Within in the gd tar is gddemo.c which makes a gddemo executable.
./gddemo creates a png so I assume that gd is functioning correctly in making pngs.

in the php-4.0.2 directory I run
./configure \
--with-mysql=/usr/local/mysql \
--with-gd=/usr/local/src/gd \
--with-apxs \
--with-png-dir=/usr/local/src/png \

It never seems to find the png functions.
checking for gdImageCreateFromPng in -lgd... no

And trying to access a php page that is trying to generate a png gives...
<b>Warning</b>:  ImagePng: No PNG support in this PHP build

This problem stems from there being a gd.h file that was installed under the Mac OS Server Ten dkpg.  The file was located at

After removing the file, and rebuilding GD the problem went away.
