in thread Installing modules

The first command doesn't find the file. It seems that ActivePerl is somewhere else.

I can try "make install" on the GD thing, but since it says I probably shouldn't, I'm guessing that I probably shouldn't.

The warnings when I run "make" mention that something is wrong with gdlib:
ld: warning in /usr/lib/libpng.dylib, file is not of required architecture

I did install it - it wasn't easy to find, but I found something on
so I installed that. Maybe that wasn't good enough. Can I get gdlib from somewhere else?

Also, the new version is only working for one user. I would like all users to be able to use it.

    You can get libgd here.
      Okay, I downloaded that, and as it said in the readme file, I ran "./configure" and then "make install". The configure thing remarked that there was no support for JPEG library or Freetype 2.x library, but seemed otherwise happy. "make install" popped out a long list of errors, most of which seem to be related to gd_png.c, and concluded
      make[1]: *** [gd_png.lo] Error 1 make: *** [install-recursive] Error 1

      I don't know if that means it's installed or not.

      Going back to the GD module, now "make" runs without complaining, but "make test" still fails:

      t/GD.t (Wstat: 512 Tests: 1 Failed: 1) Failed test: 1 Non-zero exit status: 2 Parse errors: Bad plan. You planned 12 tests but ran 1. t/Polyline.t (Wstat: 512 Tests: 0 Failed: 0) Non-zero exit status: 2 Parse errors: Bad plan. You planned 1 tests but ran 0.
