Solved it myself, finally ;-)
The problem is with existing installations of gd, which aren't being
correctly overridden by a new (gd-1.8.3) install. Even trying to force
PHP to look at the new installation was failing.
I eventually solved this by finding and nuking the gd-1.2 installation
which was placed by default in /usr/lib, and leaving my new install of
gd-1.8.3 in /usr/local/lib
Then I reconfigured php-4.02 with with '--with-gd' flag (no args),
together with all of the other args for Apache, MySQL, etc., and
this time it compiled and installed perfectly.
