That would be the one..

Sure, stick <?php phpinfo(); ?> into a .php file and load it into your
browser. It should have a section labeled gd if it's enabled. Also
check out the configure line at the top if it's present. It should say
somewhere in that line --with-gd=[...]

Depends.. if your friend set up PHP, he'll need to rebuild PHP with
gd support. It can be tricky sometimes, which is why I suggested
NetPBM, which doesn't require you to rebuild PHP, but will undoubtedly
need safe_mode=Off because you'll need to process the images with
exec() or http://www.php.net/backticks.
