Hi, Just tried building GD 2.56 on RHEL4 i686 (I know - it's old). It refused to build with: ---------------- Can't create bdf2gdfont.pl: Permission denied at bdf_scripts/bdf2gdfont.PLS line 11. ---------------- 2.53 builds fine on the same box (that's the last one I tried before 2.56). Thanks, -- Bojan

Oh, forgot to mention - Perl is 5.16.3, also built on the same box - not what comes with RHEL4. -- Bojan

This problem exists on all (Unix) platforms if Makefile.PL is used. It seems to work fine with Build.PL.

Adding bdf_scripts/bdf2gdfont.pl to MANIFEST.SKIP (maybe together with Makefile.old) fixes *that* problem. At which point another problem comes up: ExtUtils::MakeMaker really wants its *.xs files at the top level, while Module::Build really wants them under lib. There is no sensible way of maxing both happy (Lincoln, you may just drop the Makefile.PL at this point).

If someone else fails on installing GD on Ubuntu >= 16.10, even after applying the Debian fixes from RT#114788, just copy or move GD.xs from lib to . and rerun make.
