<mailto:ale at FreeBSD.org?cc=ports at FreeBSD.org&subject=FreeBSD%20Port:%20php5-gd-5.3.3_2>Hello,
I am writing to request a change to the php5-gd port. This port
requires that the gd extension include xpm support, which relies on a
long dependency chain of x11 libraries. Since many PHP users run
production web servers, myself included, it is not desirable to include
any x11 components for security or maintenance purposes.
I am able to compile gd by itself without xpm support, but for some
reason the php5-gd port only seems to use the bundled gd. Having a
configure option in this port to use the shared gd library or exclude
xpm support would make things much easier for system administrators ;-)
I welcome your thoughts or ideas on the matter.
Thanks for your help!
