By trivial I mean 1 line of code in gd.c... One other option would be to implement the busted functions in GD within MapServer (fixed of course) for the time being. Could introduce licensing headaches though.

Anti aliased lines are my primary (only?) reason for moving to 4.8. So 
anything that we can do to facilitate distributing a patch or whatever 
would help. It will take longer than whenever for the new gd release to 
appear on all the distribution packages :(
