in thread installing perl GD module

Recently,i was trying to install software circos, and stuck in the problem of installing GD modules. Actually, I have tried install the GD modules as following:
$cpanm GD --> Working on GD Fetching http://www.cpan.org/authors/id/L/LD/LDS/GD-2.56.tar.gz ... OK Configuring GD-2.56 ... N/A ! Configure failed for GD-2.56. See /home/clad/.cpanm/work/1448933575. +20068/build.log for details.
Then i checked the build.log and found that libgd 2.0.28 or higher was needed.
cpanm (App::cpanminus) 1.6922 on perl 5.016003 built for x86_64-linux- +thread-multi Work directory is /home/clad/.cpanm/work/1448933575.20068 You have make /usr/bin/make You have LWP 6.05 You have /usr/bin/tar: tar (GNU tar) 1.26 Copyright (C) 2011 Free Software Foundation, Inc.

See /home/clad/.cpanm/work/14489 +33575.20068/build.log for details.
Thus, i installed the libgd. Following the README.TXT:
1. Type './configure' 2. Type 'make install'
Once again, i got another problem.
$make install Making install in src make[1]: Entering directory `/home/clad/zzx/software/libgd-2.1.1/src' make[2]: Entering directory `/home/clad/zzx/software/libgd-2.1.1/src' /usr/bin/mkdir -p '/usr/local/lib' /usr/bin/mkdir: cannot create directory ‘/usr/local/lib’: File exists make[2]: *** [install-libLTLIBRARIES] Error 1 make[2]: Leaving directory `/home/clad/zzx/software/libgd-2.1.1/src' make[1]: *** [install-am] Error 2 make[1]: Leaving directory `/home/clad/zzx/software/libgd-2.1.1/src' make: *** [install-recursive] Error 1

Then, i tried to used sources fetched from git and ran bootstrap.sh. The error message was "Can't find naturaldocs; not generating user manual."

I was really confused about what to do now.

I really appreciate it if you could spare some time and help me out.

Best regards.
