I believe the source is under php/ext/gd, but I don't know if the PHP
version of GD can be built as a standalone lib and used by external
programs. You could try and let us know.
BTW, GD has been brought back to life recently at http://libgd.org/
"under the umbrella of PHP.net" so they are definitely aware of the PHP
GD fork and there's hope that some of these new functions may be added
to future releases (or may be in the dev version, 2.1.0 in CVS HEAD?).
