in thread installing GD.pm

Sorry for confusing things, I wanted to refer to GD.so.

Both GD.o and GD.so are created, GD.o in the top level, GD.so in blib/arch/auto/GD. running ldd on GD.so shows no missing libraries.

The output from running "make test" gave me no indication about what was going wrong, so I resorted to run the test-scripts manually - this is how I generated the output I posted.

So far I did not have any problem with the GD.pm that I installed regardless of the failed tests, still I would like to understand what the problem was - I will repeat the excercise on another machine and see what happens there...

    I'm not entirely sure of the way you did that ... though I feel I ought to be able to deduce it from the output you provided.
    Prior to installing the module, you need to run that test script as perl -Mblib t/polyline.t

    If that's what you did, then I'm still puzzled as to the absence of blib in @INC - it *should* be there.

    Of course, after you've installed the module, you should be able to run that script as simply perl t/polyline.t

    (This may well have little or nothing to do with the problem you're trying to solve, but it's at least a bit of a puzzle in itself.)

    Cheers,
    Rob
