As a once-again proud owner of a feline, I'm building my development environment. I've found an excellent walk-through for installing MySQL, and another instalation guide for GD (PDF) for PHP use. The MacBook Pro is the fastest machine I've ever used, bar none. Such a pleasure, well-worth the investment.
For the record, I'll mention the
configure parameters I used to compile GD with full graphics support:
./configure --x-includes=/usr/X11/include \ --x-libraries=/usr/X11/lib \ --with-freetype=/usr/X11/
As in the linked-to tutorial, I assume you've installed the full X11 development libraries. With that, the result is:
** Configuration summary for gd 2.0.34: Support for PNG library: yes Support for JPEG library: yes Support for Freetype 2.x library: yes Support for Fontconfig library: yes Support for Xpm library: yes Support for pthreads: yes
I hope somebody finds this useful.
