The Linuxconf web interface don't works if you don't have the gd library instaled
IMHO, this is a mistake, ou at least the package linuxconf may depend on gd on install,
so, everybody will install gd to run linuxconf

Reproducible: Always
Steps to Reproduce:
1. Isntall a RedHat Linux 7.0 box without gd, with linuxconf
2. Configure in linuxconf to allow web access
3. Configure in ntsysv to start linuxconf web interface, restart xinetd, etc

Actual Results:  1. Try, it will show you the Linuxconf webpage, but the images
    brokes, if you try to click in "Start", don't work anymore, reload the page also don't work anymore
2. In /var/log/messages you will see:
Mar 22 12:21:16 pavan xinetd[1007]: warning: can't get client address: Invalid argument
Mar 22 12:21:16 pavan xinetd[1007]: file descriptor of service linuxconf has been closed
3. Run linuxconf --http --debug
4. Connect on
    It will show the startpage, and crash on showing the logo image: 
    *** ERROR *** libgd.so not found -- install the "gd" package.

Expected Results:  Show linuxconf web interface :-)

I don't know if it generate all images on-the-fly, but I think that it may store all images
pre-generated on disk, and just show them, not needing additional libraries to
generate the images
