- Compiling in GD support

rate this thread
anti-aliasing functions of JPGraph, it requires the GD library to be a part
of PHP at copilation, rather than through php-gd.
I am running debian, and installed/update php, apache, etc using the package
system and apt-get. I have compiled from source before, but am wondering
about moving forward... i.e. if I compile php with gd, when debian releases
the next php version as a package, I won't be able to do the simple + clean
apt-get -upgrade... correct? I''l have to continually get php source as it
gets updated and compile in gd for each upgrade?
Am I completely off-base or oversimplifying here? End game is compiled gd
support vs. ease of maintenance/upgrade path.
Any comments appreciated!
