[erlang-bugs] Build failes on PPC Leopard

Hi,

Thank you for pointing out this error.

Compiling with libgd on certain platforms is a known issue, especially 
on mac. Configure should have detected the linker problem and disabled 
it. It didn't and this is clearly a bug.

If you don't need percept I recommend using ./configure --without-gd 
which will disable percept also.

The image rendering used by percept is currently being phased towards 
pure erlang code which will eliminate this problem in the future.

Regards,
Björn-Egil Dahlberg
