I am trying to start Circos in Debian but I get two missing modules

root@masi:/home/masi/circos-0.69# bin/circos -modules | grep missing
missing            GD
missing            GD::Polyline

Trying to install

root@masi:/home/masi/circos-0.69# cpan GD
CPAN: Storable loaded ok (v2.49_01)

Configuring L/LD/LDS/GD-2.56.tar.gz with Build.PL
Could not find gdlib-config in the search path. Please install libgd 2.0.28 or higher.
Warning: No success on command[/usr/bin/perl Build.PL --installdirs site]
  /usr/bin/perl Build.PL --installdirs site -- NOT OK

I also did apt-get install libgd and cpan libgd but does not help.

OS: Debian 8.5
Perl: 5.20
Linux kernel: 4.6 backports

sudo apt-get install libgd-perl

will install GD and GD::Polyline.
