I'm not sure what's wrong, but the compiler complains
it cannot find the include files gd.h and gdfonts.h.

check Makefile.  I bet CFLAGS is not defined appropriately.
relevant part here from my environment:


CC = gcc
CFLAGS = -g -O2 -I/opt/gd/include -DGFORM_GD=gdImagePng -Wall -pedantic
## LDFLAGS =  -lm -L/opt/gd/lib -lgd -lpng -lz
LDFLAGS =  -lm -L/opt/gd/lib -R/opt/gd/lib -lgd -lpng -R/usr/local/lib -lz

all:	 run/rateup subst

run/rateup: src/rateup.c
	$(CC) $(CFLAGS) src/rateup.c $(LDFLAGS) -o run/rateup


make variable CFLAGS should specify the directory to search gd include files
("-I/opt/gd/include" above).
edit this Makefile directly, and do make again.

I added -R/usr/local/lib to LDFLAGS to embed in the rateup binary
the path where to find libz.so and libgd.so on runtime.
with this I don't need to set environment variable LD_LIBRARY_PATH
when running rateup.
(png library libpng.a is not a shared object, so,
necessary routines from libpng.a are linked to rateup binary compiletime.
hence "-R" is not necesary.)
