jpeg, png, freestype lib

i checked the /usr/lib and all the lib files are there but in format as such:

libfreetype.so.6
libjpeg.so.62
..etc..

i tried pointing the library directory to the /usr/lib as such

./configure --with-png=/usr/lib --with-jpeg=/usr/lib ...etc.

and the libraries are still not being detected.

thank you.

Maybe you can just install the rpm for gd

ftp://rpmfind.net/linux/redhat/8.0/e...8.4-9.i386.rpm

well you're trying to install gd from source, so you will need the libblah-devel pacakges which contain the header files needded to compile with those libraries (it's not possible to just blindy use a .so file when compiling. you could just install gd from an rpm aswell.
