It will happen automagically the next time cvsgraph is rebuilt against the
new libgd-dev (thanks to the helpful hint from Joey Hess).
If you want to see it happen for the Woody release, go ahead and write a
wishlist bugreport for your favourite libgd-dependend package.
According to aptitude (I don't know how to do with apt-find or dpkg) the
following packages use libgd:
And the following packages depend on libgd2:
And these depend on libgd-perl:
"depends on libgd" doesn't necessarily mean they are compiled against the
library, so either a simple rebuild is necessary or changing the Depends
Similarly, the following packages might use a change of Depends for
"libgd-perl | libgd-perl-noxpm" (or the other way around - the first one
mentioned has highest priority and if XPM is really not needed it should
prefer the noxpm version):
Feel free to quote me wherever. I usually post on d-private because that's
