Need help compiling PHP with gd support.

Need help compiling PHP with gd support.

Need help compiling PHP with gd support.

I have been trying to compile PHP to work with the gd image creation library, but so far all my efforts meet with problems at ./configure time.

Using FreeBSD 3.2, then 3.4, Apache 1.3.12, PHP 4.0 Beta 4, and gd 1.3, then 1.7.

I have tried this several different ways, according to the SKETCHY information at php.net and the gd website, but no matter what I try, the PHP ./configure routine never finds the gd libraries.

I even copied gd.h and the other files into the directory that the error message said it was searching in, and still got the same error.

Any clues?
