you'd probably need to recompile the sources.  iirc open up debian/rules
and remove the stuff about external gd but keep it enabled (also you
might want to browse through the patches dir in case we have something
there too).

really, the *real* solution to this problem would be for someone to do
the work to send the relevant patches in the php version of gd upstream
to the gd author.  you might want to talk to the current gd maintainer
