Additionally, when compiling the package gd, it lists libvpx as a dependency, but shows this error:
configure: WARNING: unrecognized options: --with-vpx

Your gd library is outdated and still links to libvpx. Current version of libgd drops any reference to libvpx and uses libwebp instead.

The only bug here is that gd is still compiled with --with-vpx and has libvpx in depends.

Yes you're right it was not the packages problem causing the crash. So this is just a problem with the package wanting libvpx and using an obsolete configure option.
