I have no idea if it would be there by default, but you could try 
running "locate /libgd." on your system to see if the library files are 
installed.  (BTW, on an Ubuntu 12.04.4 LTS system here, they were 
already installed, but then this system has PHP and a bunch of support 
packages for a web site.  The package name for gd on this Ubuntu distro 
is "libgd2-xpm".)
