Recent upgrade to php 5.2.3 require to install gd support too but it always need xorg. Here’s a lttle note on how to add gd support in php5 ports in freebsd without xorg.

1. Checking installed php extension

proxy# pkg_info | grep php5

2. Find php5-gd and install it.

proxy# whereis php5-gd
php5-gd: /usr/ports/graphics/php5-gd
proxy# cd /usr/ports/graphics/php5-gd && make clean
===>  Cleaning for php5-gd-5.2.3

3. Change strategy, install gd first before install php5-gd

proxy# whereis gd
gd: /usr/ports/graphics/gd

proxy# cd /usr/ports/graphics/gd && make install WITH_XPM=3Dyes WITHOUT_X11=3Dyes
===>  Vulnerability check disabled, database not found

=> gd-2.0.35.tar.bz2 doesn’t seem to exist in /usr/ports/distfiles/.
=> Attempting to fetch from http://www.libgd.org/releases/.

Checking if gd installed properly.

adding in /etc/make.conf

WITHOUT_X11=yes

proxy# pkg_info | grep gd

5. Install php5-gd
