[php-maint] Bug#321237: php5-gd: not using gd bundled with php5

Package: php5-gd
Version: 5.0.4-3
Severity: wishlist

gd seems to build with an external gd library,
php5 has it's own gd library shipped with it.

One functions that isn't available when gd is build with an external lib
is ImageRotate();

This function is probably used a lot (I use it) and there is no real
reason to not use the gd library bundled with php I think.

So It would be nice if the bundeled gd lib is used instead of the
external debian one. If this is not possible try to patch it maybe so
php still knows about the ImageRotate() function.
