[mrtg] MRTG 2.8.6 and private versions of gd

I've just been building version 2.8.6 (previously was using 2.7.4b).
This is on unix (digital unix 4.0d, if it matters).

I decided I would like to get the new PNG-based gd (1.6.2), but
because of the likelihood of compatibility problems with earlier
versions of gd, I wanted to use a private copy of the new gd version.

I did a "make" on the gd with apparent success, and pointed to its
subdirectory in the --with-gd-lib= and --with-gd-inc= configuration
parameters for mrtg.  But it appeared that the configuration procedure
was still finding the old, installed, version of gd.

Would I be right in deducing that it's only when gd is _installed_
that the libraries are actually built, and therefore my attempt
couldn't work?  It would seem, then, that gd would need to be built
with a different destination directory specified, and the "make
install" completed, before this idea could be a success.
