Install GnuWin32 library packages freetype, gd, jpeg, libpng. 2. perl Makefile.PL --ignore_missing_gd MYEXTLIB=c:/gnu/GnuWin32/lib/ libgd.dll.a c:/gnu/GnuWin32/lib/libpng.dll.a c:/gnu/GnuWin32/lib/ libjpeg.dll.a c:/gnu/GnuWin32/lib/libfreetype.dll.a 3. Answer the prompt for libgd path: c:/gnu/GnuWin32/lib and yes to all libs support. Then dmake, dmake test and dmake install run ok. Could be added to README. hth
