I do NOT want to become the maintainer of perl-GD, but I do know its
pitfalls, so I prepared a SlackBuild for anyone willing to pick it up,
see attachment. Just insert your name and e-mail address :-)

Some notes...

The tests don't work.

The Makefile.PL doesn't work at all.

The Build.PL will work but needs a patch because the use of Getopt renders 
the usual Build.PL options useless. My patch was made for Slackware 14.1 
and also trims the required version down to 0.40 to work with what was a 
core module then, but since Module-Build is an external dependency now you 
can leave this out.

I didn't have a need for the scripts and was too lazy to clean up 
$PKG/usr/bin, so I simply deleted it. As a careful maintainer you should 
not do that :-)

Have fun!
