Sorry for what might be a dumb question. I have a CentOS 4.4 machine 
with GD installed. I tend to prefer doing things via RPM to allow for 
updating in a easier fashion. I have a php based app that requires 
Freetype support in GD. This is a live server with many websites on it 
(although none are using GD at the moment.

I am not sure the best/easiest way to get GD updated such that it has 
Freetype support. I did not install X on this machine as it was not 
needed. Would installing X be one of the steps I need to take?

Thanks for your suggestions.
