The configure script has been modified a bit.  First, it enables just
about everything, and second it generally only looks in the standard
places for header files ("gd.h", etc..) and libraries.  Have a look
at "./configure --help" for enabling/disabling features and for specifying
search paths for various dependencies.  With all the variants of where
things are located, it was becoming a nightmare to try and automatically
locate all of the dependencies.  If you have questions about specific
dependencies or features, just ask...

Note: The "gd" library is used for the PNG driver...
