Hello,

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
/usr/include/gcc/i686-pc-cygwin/4.3.4/../.
   ./..gd.h, 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_FREETYPE GD_PNG GD_G
   IF GD_GIFANIM GD_OPENPOLYGON GD_UNCLOSEDPOLY GD_ANIMGIF GD_FTCIRCLE
VERSION_33
   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,

Paul
