This is intentional, actually.  if you google around for debian php
libgd you'll probably see bug reports with a longer story.  in later
(5.3.x and later i believe) the issue is resolved with a compatibility
layer, but in the meantime if this is critical for you, you should use a
backport or recompile the package from source after modifying
debian/rules to enable the built-in gd.
