During 'perl Makefike.PL' of GD-2.35 on MS WindowsXP Home Edition SP 2, I was asked "Where is libgd installed?" to which I answered "C:/Progra~1/GnuWin32" (I had installed the package of GD from the GNUWin32 project). Then I edited the Makefile, changing: $(LD) -o $@ -Wl,--base-file -Wl,dll.base $(LDDLFLAGS) $(LDFROM) $(OTHERLDFLAGS) $(MYEXTLIB) $(PERL_ARCHIVE) $(LDLOADLIBS) dll.exp dlltool --def $(EXPORT_LIST) --base-file dll.base --output-exp dll.exp $(LD) -o $@ $(LDDLFLAGS) $(LDFROM) $(OTHERLDFLAGS) $(MYEXTLIB) $(PERL_ARCHIVE) $(LDLOADLIBS) dll.exp to: $(LD) -o $@ -Wl,--base-file -Wl,dll.base $(LDDLFLAGS) $(LDFROM) $(OTHERLDFLAGS) $(MYEXTLIB) $(PERL_ARCHIVE) $(LDLOADLIBS) C:\Progra~1\GnuWin32\lib\libgd.dll.a dll.exp dlltool --def $(EXPORT_LIST) --base-file dll.base --output-exp dll.exp $(LD) -o $@ $(LDDLFLAGS) $(LDFROM) $(OTHERLDFLAGS) $(MYEXTLIB) $(PERL_ARCHIVE) $(LDLOADLIBS) C:\Progra~1\GnuWin32\lib\libgd.dll.a dll.exp With those changes, built successfully. Without the Makefile changes, I get errors like: g++ -o blib\arch\auto\GD\GD.dll -Wl,--base-file -Wl,dll.base -mdll -s -L"c:\strawberry-perl\perl\lib\CORE" -L"c:\strawberry-perl\mingw\lib" GD.o -Wl,--image-base,0x2b280000 C:\strawberry-perl\perl\lib\CORE\libperl58.a c:\strawberry-perl\mingw\lib\libmsvcrt.a c:\strawberry-perl\mingw\lib\libmoldname.a c:\strawberry-perl\mingw\lib\libkernel32.a c:\strawberry-perl\mingw\lib\libuser32.a c:\strawberry-perl\mingw\lib\libgdi32.a c:\strawberry-perl\mingw\lib\libwinspool.a c:\strawberry-perl\mingw\lib\libcomdlg32.a c:\strawberry-perl\mingw\lib\libadvapi32.a c:\strawberry-perl\mingw\lib\libshell32.a c:\strawberry-perl\mingw\lib\libole32.a c:\strawberry-perl\mingw\lib\liboleaut32.a c:\strawberry-perl\mingw\lib\libnetapi32.a c:\strawberry-perl\mingw\lib\libuuid.a c:\strawberry-perl\mingw\lib\libws2_32.a c:\strawberry-perl\mingw\lib\libmpr.a c:\strawberry-perl\mingw\lib\libwinmm.a c:\strawberry-perl\mingw\lib\libversion.a c:\strawberry-perl\mingw\lib\libodbc32.a c:\strawberry-perl\mingw\lib\libodbccp32.a dll.exp GD.o:GD.c:(.text+0x16f): undefined reference to `_imp__gdImageCreateTrueColor@8' GD.o:GD.c:(.text+0x188): undefined reference to `_imp__gdImageCreate@8' GD.o:GD.c:(.text+0x2ae): undefined reference to `_imp__gdImageTrueColorToPalette @12' ...

'perl.exe' complained that it couldn't find 'libgd2.dll' (which was located at 'C:\Program Files\GnuWin32\bin\libgd2.dll') when trying to load './blib/auto/GD/GD.dll'. The following is some of what the test harness reported, but 'perl.exe' actually gave a popup dialog stating 'This application has failed to start because libgd2.dll was not found. Re-installing the application may fix the problem.': t/Polyline....Can't load 'C:\Temp\cpan\build\GD-2.35\blib\arch/auto/GD/GD.dll' for module GD: load_file:The specified module could not be found at C:/strawberry-perl/perl/lib/ line 230. at C:\Temp\cpan\build\GD-2.35\blib\lib/GD/ line 45 Compilation failed in require at C:\Temp\cpan\build\GD-2.35\blib\lib/GD/ line 45. BEGIN failed--compilation aborted at C:\Temp\cpan\build\GD-2.35\blib\lib/GD/ line 45. Compilation failed in require at t/Polyline.t line 10. So I set the following environment variables to make the tests pass: C:\Temp\cpan\build\GD-2.35>set LIB=%LIB%;C:\Program Files\GnuWin32\bin;C:\Program Files\GnuWin32\lib; C:\Temp\cpan\build\GD-2.35>set PATH=%PATH%;C:\Program Files\GnuWin32\bin;C:\Program Files\GnuWin32\lib; To make sure I wouldn't have problems in the future, I went to Control Panel->System->Advanced->Environment Variables and changed those variables permanently to include the GnuWin32 paths. I don't usually develop on Win32, but thought you might like to be aware of the problem. perl -V Summary of my perl5 (revision 5 version 8 subversion 8) configuration: Platform: osname=MSWin32, osvers=5.1, archname=MSWin32-x86-multi-thread uname='' config_args='undef' hint=recommended, useposix=true, d_sigaction=undef usethreads=define use5005threads=undef useithreads=define usemultiplicity=define useperlio=define d_sfio=undef uselargefiles=define usesocks=undef use64bitint=undef use64bitall=undef uselongdouble=undef usemymalloc=n, bincompat5005=undef Compiler: cc='gcc', ccflags =' -s -O2 -DWIN32 -DHAVE_DES_FCRYPT -DPERL_IMPLICIT_CONTEXT -DPERL_IMPLICIT_SYS -fno-strict-aliasing -DPERL_MSVCRT_READFIX', optimize='-s -O2', cppflags='-DWIN32' ccversion='', gccversion='3.4.5', gccosandvers='' intsize=4, longsize=4, ptrsize=4, doublesize=8, byteorder=1234 d_longlong=undef, longlongsize=8, d_longdbl=define, longdblsize=12 ivtype='long', ivsize=4, nvtype='double', nvsize=8, Off_t='long long', lseek size=8 alignbytes=8, prototype=define Linker and Libraries: ld='g++', ldflags ='-s -L"c:\strawberry-perl\perl\lib\CORE" -L"c:\strawberry-perl\mingw\lib"' libpth=c:\strawberry-perl\mingw\lib libs= -lmsvcrt -lmoldname -lkernel32 -luser32 -lgdi32 -lwinspool -lcomdlg32 -ladvapi32 -lshell32 -lole32 -loleaut32 -lnetapi32 -luuid -lws2_32 -lmpr -lwinmm -lversion -lodbc32 -lodbccp32 perllibs= -lmsvcrt -lmoldname -lkernel32 -luser32 -lgdi32 -lwinspool -lcomdl g32 -ladvapi32 -lshell32 -lole32 -loleaut32 -lnetapi32 -luuid -lws2_32 -lmpr -lwinmm -lversion -lodbc32 -lodbccp32 libc=-lmsvcrt, so=dll, useshrplib=yes, libperl=libperl58.a gnulibc_version='' Dynamic Linking: dlsrc=dl_win32.xs, dlext=dll, d_dlsymun=undef, ccdlflags=' ' cccdlflags=' ', lddlflags='-mdll -s -L"c:\strawberry-perl\perl\lib\CORE" -L" c:\strawberry-perl\mingw\lib"' Characteristics of this binary (from libperl): Compile-time options: MULTIPLICITY PERL_IMPLICIT_CONTEXT PERL_IMPLICIT_SYS PERL_MALLOC_WRAP PL_OP_SLAB_ALLOC USE_ITHREADS USE_LARGE_FILES USE_PERLIO Built under MSWin32 Compiled at Aug 27 2006 17:17:50 @INC: C:/strawberry-perl/perl/lib C:/strawberry-perl/perl/site/lib .

strawberry misses -lgd from its gdlib-config libs. This was fixed some years ago Works fine, see the smoker: -- Reini Urban
