I really need a later version of the GD Library than the default, and CS linked to this wiki on installing a custom build of PHP 5. Despite being clueless, in desperation I've spent the past week trying to get this to build PHP 5 with the more recent version, to no avail. I've added the required jpeg and png libraries to that, and I've been experimenting with variations of things I see in the script like:
in the configuration (I have no idea when to use -dir and when not to, but think I have tried all the combinations anyway) but that just throws a bunch of call to undefined function errors, other variations have just done nothing. Would somebody please be kind enough to walk me through this?
