  • But the ActiveState build status page says

    ActiveState isn't the only PPM repository. There are many of them, for example: University of Winnipeg [] and Bribes [], as well as smaller repositories with PPMs for wxPerl []. There's a module on CPAN, PPM::Repositories [] to provide a full list. FWIW, I just installed GD from the Winnipeg repository without any problems.

    I don't really like the idea of massive Perl distributions including a compiler - I think binary packaging is a better solution, even for *nix operating systems. There's still a long way to go though.

    • Thanks. I already found that module a while back. Works very well too, I added everything I found.
      It's very interesting that you were able to install GD, my ppm should have found it too!
