gdImageGifAnimAddPtr undefined problems trying to build perl GD

2006-07-27 10:23:07

I had quite an unexpected amount of trouble installing the perl GD package on this server. First, I needed to install libgd-devel: the makefile generator didn't notice none of the includes were around. Then I kept getting an undefined symbol:


when trying to load the during "make test"

The workaround was to disable support for animated GIFs in the configuration. My libgd version is 2.0.28, I guess that must be too old.
