Hi,

I'm in the process of trying to install v1.20 of GD.pm (Readme file is
located at [url]http://www.cpan.org/modules/by-module/GD/GD-1.20.readme[/url])...

I've installed all of the prerequisite packages (Perl 5.8.0, GD
Graphics Library 2.0.15, PNG Graphics Library, Zlib Compression
Library) but when I do a make test it gives me the following error:

---

PERL_DL_NONLAZY=1 /usr/bin/perl "-MExtUtils::Command::MM" "-e"
"test_harness(0, 'blib/lib', 'blib/arch')" t/*.t

I've had a look at the DynaLoader.pm file as it suggests on line 229
but there is a comment above it stating:
"Many dynamic extension loading problems will appear to come from this
section of code: XYZ failed at line 123 of DynaLoader.pm. Often these
errors are actually occuring in the initialisation C code of the
extension XS file. Perl reports the error as being in this perl code
simply because this was the last perl code it executed".

So I looked at the GD.xs file but I don't know what to look for...

Can anyone help???

Thanks in advance,

Jacks0n.
