I get the error reported at while upgrading SageMath in Ubuntu-14.04. I am forced to go back to version 6.2 as upgrading from 6.8, 6.7, 6.4 ended up with the libgd-2.1.1.p0 error and no usable Sage.

I am unable to find resolution of the error in the repositories. What is the present status of upgrading Sage in this context?

Well, it is there, anyway:

$ git log build/pkgs/libgd/

    update libgd to 2.1.1

    add patch to libgd to fix build error

But I can't answer as to whether that should have fixed your specific error. Maybe that only worked on Arch and is unrelated to this, or maybe it's a different libpvx issue?

Here you can find a patch that helped me solve a similar build problem on Arch. I'm guessing it is the same issue as in ticket 18293 since libvpx is involved.

Are you building sage from source?
