I need GD for Redhat 9 - PERL Miscellaneous

I downloaded the GD module from CPAN and tried to compile it on redhat 9 and it fails. Where can I get a pre-compiled version of this module? I am also looking to run the GD::barcode module. Is this also pre compiled? Have a great day! Jim Rendant...

    This is a technical newsgroup. What was the error message(s) you received?
    >Where can I get a pre-compiled version of this module?
    Most image modules don't do the image processing themselves, but rely on external libraries to do it
    for them. For example, GD.pm requires libgd.so/libgd.a (the GD library) to exist before it will
    compile and function.

    Do you have the GD library installed on your system ? Does it's version match the one recommended in
    GD.pm's readme ?

    I had some trouble as well. There seems to be lots of "addons" in the latest
    version.

    Version 1.19 (the last version with gif support) installed OK for me on
    Redhat 9.
    See GD-1.19-* at [url]http://cpan.org/modules/by-module/GD/[/url]

    Any GD with a version number below 2 should compile with the libgd
    that comes with Redhat 9, which I believe is 1.84. You don't have to
    go all the way back to 1.19 (you should only need to do that if you
    want GIF support, and you have a libgd that supports GIF, but you
    should not want to have GIF support).

    \begin{offtopic}

    If you want a newer version, i.e. the latest, download libgd yourself
    (from [url]www.boutell.com[/url]), compile and install it somewhere out of the
    way (I have some versions in /opt/gd-x.yy), and then download and
    compile the GD 2.x version you want, making sure to tell it where the
    correct libgd is installed. Off the top of my head, the sequence is
    somewhat like this:

    $ tar xzvf gd-x.yy.tar.gz
    $ cd gd-x.yy
    $ ./configure --prefix=/wherever/you/want
    $ make
    # become root
    $ make install

    \end{offtopic}

    and for GD, just type perl Makefile.pl, and answer the first question
    with /whatever/you/want/lib

    Right. I did this for RH 7.3:
    Download the RedHat Rawhide GD source rpm.
    rpm --rebuild gd-2.0.12-src.rpm

    Install the binary.
    Install XFree86-devel, libpng-devel, libjpeg-devel and freetype-devel and
    gd-devel.
    #perl -MCPAN -e'install GD'
    Works fine for me.

    The Perl distribution that comes with RH9 is seriously broken. There
    is a problem with Config.pm. Compiling most modules won't work. If you
    are using RH9, I'd recommend rebuilding Perl from source.

    Many things in RH9 seem to be seriously broken. I also couldn't install the
    DBD::ODBC driver without first reinstalling Qt from source and then
    reinstalling unixODBC. I think they're becoming more interested in charging
    for access to RHN than in putting out a working product. Sounds like another
    company I know...
