Description of problem:
11/01/04: gd 2.0.32 has been released. gd 2.0.29 added animated GIF
writing support, fontconfig support for easily specifying freetype
font names, open polygon drawing, and important fixes for
theoretically exploitable integer overflows in memory allocation
code in previous releases. 2.0.30 corrected a minor compilation
problem when freetype is absent, and 2.0.31 corrected a similar
issue which prevented the Windows DLL version from being built.
2.0.32 corrected an issue when PNG is absent and also corrected a
problem with umlauts in truetype text output. See the what's new
section of the gd 2.0.32 manual for additional information.
Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable):
The following did it for me. I also did some spec file cleanup, the
"protection" is just foobar stuff, jbj told me some time ago, so I
also removed it.
Upgrade to 2.0.32 ;-)
I think, FC3 should get a update for this and FC2 also - this
release is a improvement and contains security fixes.

Diff of the gd spec files
bug 137247 covers the security update needed; therefore removing
Fedora Core Development has gd-2.0.32-1, keeping it open until FC2/3
get also a fix.
Closing, erratas have been released a while ago.
Read ya, Phil
