Hello, While packaging GD for NixOS ( ) it was necessary to specify library search paths, due to that distribution's non-standard filesytem layout. However, in the current version of GD ( GD-2.45, the source code obtained from ) the Makefile.PL options controlling library search paths are not used. Without the pass_through configuration parameter set, the first call to GetOptions ( from Getopt::Long ) leaves @ARGV empty, with result that the second call to GetOptions has no options to find. The version of Getopt::Long packaged with NixOS is 2.38. The attached patch sets the pass_through parameter; with this patch it was possible to successfully specify library search paths. Let me take this oportunity to say thank you for contributing GD to the world! Regards, Karn Kallio

This is now fixed, esp. with static libgd. Dynamic libgd locations are out of our control, but -L and -I is set. -- Reini Urban
