That's why faqomatic Suggests: libgd-perl.

          This is used to declare that one package may be more useful
          with one or more others. Using this field tells the packaging
          system and the user that the listed packages are related to
          this one and can perhaps enhance its usefulness, but that
          installing this one without them is perfectly reasonable.

It's perfectly reasonable to install faqomatic without libgd-perl. The
statgraph module won't work, but faqomatic doesn't die if a module can't
be loaded. Furthermore, libgd-perl would pull in dependencies on X,
which I'd rather not require in a package that might well be used on a
small headless server machine. I'm therefore closing this bug.
