That is simply a deficiency in my ability to write a
template.  In the case of GD, I could have made it optional, but it is so
small, and I figured I would just let it be transparent.  If it finds it
out there, it adds support for it.  The GDBM case is something I should
work on though.

Hey, there is an online interface to help you build that.  See:

There is also a question/answer type of front-end for it.  See the 'setup'

And lastly, once you have done it once, simply run ./config.status for all
subsequent compiles.
