Re: libgd's dependency on xlib stops netsaint from "testing"

Quoting Bernd Eckenfels (ecki@lina.inka.de):

A simple solution for this would be to make libgd1 *suggest* xlibs, but
not depend on it. Since libgd1 will work when xlibs is not installed (eg.
purged with --force-depends), only xpm support will be broken.

I have not really tested this situation, but it's the most logical result.
