In the future, please Cc the port maintainers (port info --maintainers wml), if any.

Thank you for reporting. I'd like to let you know that this will either be very easy to fix, or nearly impossible to fix because upstream is no longer maintained and its build system is outdated and very complex. As a workaround, it might be possible to use instead of WML::GD.

Turns out that WML::GD as well as other modules in wml_common weren't building due to the way the Makefile sets up the options for ExtUtils::MakeMaker. I'm attaching a patch.
