Description Mike McHenry 2000-08-16 12:15:05 EDT
I have noticed that the gd-1.8 package is missing compatibility symlinks 
for the following:


The fix is simple, patch gd.spec with the following...

The .so symlink is in gd-devel, and a .so.1 would be a bad idea because gd 1.8
is not binary-compatible with 1.3 (it uses PNG and not GIF).
