I did that for the webbutton program :-)
Was very easy actually. Just download an old GD and a new GD release and
merge them together. No patches needed in the source code, just hack
the Makefile.am files to put the extra objects in the library.

Have a look at http://www.dse.nl/rvdberg/software/webbutton/
The GD library is part of the webbutton tar file.

I'm not sure if there is LZW support in it...
