I used the former, works fine. I still need to tweak the configure
script a bit. There
are a few funky things in the GD section like a do loop to process /usr
and /usr/local.
That doesn't seem necessary but I'm no configure expert.  I'm not sure
the script
is right when a user sets an lib directory either, need to read up on
in those cases. It works ok though in most circumstances. Commited on

Perhaps gdImageCreateTrueColor()?  gdImageSetAntiAliased() could be a
good candidate too since it's the reason behind this whole change, but
think it's present only in version 2.0.12.
