[mrtg] Compiling MRTG

I know I'm gonna get hammered for this ...  but ....  

Can someone give me a quick hand?

Redhat Linux 7.3
MRTG 2.9.26b

I've installed the RPM's for libpng, libjpeg, and gd.  I also installed
gd-devel since rateup apparently needs the header file.  I've added
/usr/lib and /usr/local/lib to the /etc/ld.so.conf file and re-run
ldconfig to populate the cache.  However, when I run configure, I get an
error that the GD Library is required.

I've tried adding in the --with-gd-lib and --with-gd-inc options to
point at the correct locations for the libgd.so and gd.h files.  The
configure program apparently sees the gd.h file, but not the library? 
Here's a snippet of output :

checking for gdImageGif in -lgd... no
checking for gdImagePng in -lgd... no
checking for gdImagePng_jpg in -lgd... no
checking for gdImagePng_jpg_ft in -lgd... no
checking for gdImageGd in -lgd... yes
checking gd.h usability... yes
checking gd.h presence... yes
checking for gd.h... yes

The gdImage items are bothering me at the moment...  I think my
salvation may be in there somewhere... *grin*  I'm not sure how to tell
the system that I have that support, though ...  ???

Can anyone give me a nudge, push, slap, or something to let me know what
step I'm missing?
