Thanks Dave and Andreas for your help. I previously had very limited
experience with apt and debian packages. I read the apt docs over the
weekend, and will no longer be trying to install from source things
availble as packages. A colleague installed libgd-perl without a hitch
over a weekend. One more small step up the linux learning curve!
