Can't get GD2 to be recognized

Do you have a question? Post it now! No Registration Necessary.  Now with pictures!

Hi all,

I have the gd and gd2 libraries compiled into my php install, but the
jpeg functions do not exist.  I found out this is because I don't have
jpeg support compiled in specifically.  So, I installed the jpeg
libraries from  When configuring, I
used the --enable-shared flag.  Then I added the --with-jpeg-dir=/usr/
local/lib to the php configure command.  When I was all done, I was
still getting the jpeg functions do not exist errors.  I have no idea
why.  Any ideas would be greatly appreciated.

Note: I have pasted pertinent sections of my phpinfo() below.
