I compiled my version of PHP with the --with-gd option on.  I do not
have the image.module installed.  I get the following error in my
watchdog logs:

I can veriy that this is the case.. Not sure how to fix though..
Another side effect of this is that we can't upload any files, is this
only my install or do other people can duplicate the problem?

Same problem here, I do have gd2 installed.  There seems to be a
confusion between 'gd' and 'gd2' in image.inc. After applying the patch
it works for me again: the built in functions are called image_gd_xxxx,
but because of this one line sometimes image_gd2_xxx functions are
looked for.

I'm pretty sure this fix is ok...

I'm not sure if that patch is the right way to go.  I looked into this
and traced the problem back to lines 34 and 35 in the
/includes/image.inc/ file. These lines set the $toolkit_file variable
to /includes/image.gd2.inc/ and then checks for its existence.  That
file does not exist, however.
Perhaps it does not exist because it is still being written?  Can we
get someone working on the image module to comment on this?

wiz, disregard my comment.  I was confused about your patch.  I thought
it was patching the system.module.
