troubles with GD and libpng (install .so?)

When I goto install GD I get the following:
checking for deflate in -lz... yes
checking for libpng-config... no
checking png.h usability... no
checking png.h presence... no
checking for png.h... no
checking libpng/png.h usability... no
checking libpng/png.h presence... no
checking for libpng/png.h... no
checking for png_create_read_struct in -lpng... no
configure: WARNING: libpng is required - see
checking for freetype-config... no
checking for FT_Init_FreeType in -lfreetype... no
configure: WARNING: not found - disabling freetype support
checking freetype/freetype.h usability... no
checking freetype/freetype.h presence... no
checking for freetype/freetype.h... no
checking for jpeg_set_defaults in -ljpeg... no
checking for XpmReadFileToXpmImage in -lXpm... no

** Configuration summary for gd 2.0.15:

Support for PNG library: no
Support for JPEG library: no
Support for Freetype 2.x library: no
Support for Xpm library: no
I'm trying to add libpng and here is what I have when I do a locate libpng


How do I install the .so? files? I downloaded some binaries and can't figure out what to do from here. Also where do I update my jpeg library (can't find it on the net). Thanks for the help.
