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
