I'd be using ap2-perl (mod_perl 2) for apache22 if the GD lib linking issue 
were resolved with libjpeg. It seems to be an issue with the default apple 
supplied vs pkgsrc supplied on Mac OS X.

What I haven't tried this recently with perl updated to 5.14 or recent mod_php 

I don't use mod_perl 1 at all.

The following is what I sent to the list back in june.

The GD extension for PHP  when running the command line php -i shows the 


GD Support => enabled
GD Version => bundled (2.0.34 compatible)
FreeType Support => enabled
FreeType Linkage => with freetype
FreeType Version => 2.4.4
GIF Read Support => enabled
GIF Create Support => enabled
JPEG Support => enabled
libJPEG Version => 8
PNG Support => enabled
libPNG Version => 1.5.3rc02
WBMP Support => enabled
XBM Support => enabled
JIS-mapped Japanese Font Support => enabled

When loading the lib/httpd/ module in apache and trying to call GD 
functions we have

PHP Fatal error:  Call to undefined function imagecreate() 

Running the php function phpinfo(); inside a php script doesn't show that the 
GD extension is loaded unlike the command line php -i

Trying to load up mod_perl under apache shows the following error.

[Sat Jun 18 10:55:57 2011] [error] Can't load

Running some perl scripts via cgi and using p5-GD does generate some images 
without error, showing that GD is functional to some extent.
