I have found grepping portindex and such to give confusing results, maybe
I just don't know the right method though.  I just did a 'port deps all'
and searched the output.  I see no dependencies on gd 1.x at all and it
seems unlikely there will be new ports depending on it.  I think it is
nukeworthy.  Nuke! Nuke! Nuke! Nuke!
