Install GD problem

I want to install the module GD to the debian server , I download GD-2.16.tar.gz and tried to install it , when install it , it pop the messages

Note (probably harmless): No library found for -lgd
Writing Makefile for GD


then I tried to download gd-2.0.35.tar.gz and tried to install it (./configure '--with-gd' '--with-png-dir=/usr' '--with-jpeg-di=/usr' '--with-freetype-dir=/usr' '--with-zlib-dir=/usr' ) , it is no error , then I use the command "make" to install it , it pop the below message , can advise what is wrong ? is there any step incorrect ?

thx

Okay...

>>> Writing Makefile for GD
Good!

After the make, you should run "make install", what do you get?
