Hi Tony,

Many thanks for your reply. I also get the same response on our system 
when I run whatprovides, i.e. 'No matches found'. I have have raised a 
support ticket with Red Hat through our subscription to RHN. Hopefully 
they will resolve this issue shortly by releasing a devel RPM (e.g. 
gd-devel-2.0.35-10.el6.x86_64.rpm) containing the missing gd.h file.

Best regards,
