Running into:

checking for ft2build.h... yes
./configure: line 18354: syntax error near unexpected token `else'
./configure: line 18354: `else'

I had done:

rm configure
git pull origin master
./configure ...

Hi devs,
In order to resolve [1] and less importantly [2], I have made some non trivial changes to the logic used inside the configure script when looking for libpng, libjpeg, giflib and libgd. For the first three, we now try to link against the libraries instead of explicitely looking for libxxx.so in a set of predefined locations. For libgd, we now look for the gdlib-config utility.
This might cause some minor issues with existing build scripts, which I hope I can quickly iron out if you report them here or in a new ticket.
