Re: perl GD - can find gd.h

Paul Cantalupo schrieb:

Yesterday Dave Korn helped me get my gcc compiler working. Now I'm
running into a new issue when trying to compile the Perl GD module.
Here is the output:

    (1008) sirius:~/downloads/GD-2.44 $ perl Makefile.PL
    Notice: Type perl Makefile.PL -h for command-line option summary.

    Configuring for libgd version 2.0.36.
    Checking for stray libgd header files...

    ** WARNING: found gd.h header file in
    ./, but it is expected at /usr/include/gd.h. This may cause
compile errors
    ! **
    ** Possible problems found **

    Included Features:          GD_XPM GD_JPEG GD_FONTCONFIG
    GD library used from:       /usr
    Writing Makefile for GD

Note how it says my gd.h header file was not found in
/usr/include/gd.h and that it was found in /usr/include/gcc/...  But
oddly enough, I don't even have a /usr/include/gcc/ directory and gd.h
is in fact found in /usr/include on my system. See output below:

    (1010) sirius:~/downloads/GD-2.44 $ ls -l /usr/include/gd.h
    -rw-r--r-- 1 LUPEY Administrators 32609 2009-09-15 06:14 /usr/include/gd.h

    (1011) sirius:~/downloads/GD-2.44 $ ls /usr/include/gcc
    ls: cannot access /usr/include/gcc: No such file or directory

What is going on here? Is this a problem with my cygwin/gcc installation or a GD problem? Thank you for your guidance,

Cannot reproduce. You need libgd-devel of course. Then perl Makefile.PL && make works fine for me.

make test fails at test 10, but this error is bogus.
It's comparing the generated jpeg to a stored jpeg, the generated jpeg is perfectly fine.
make install is fine.
