I am just now trying to determine that out. I had been using the FWTools 
"kitchen sink" approach, but that seems to be more than I need.  My 
input data are all raster images in 4-channel PNG or TIFF format using 
longitude-latitude coordinates. My requirements are WMS support 
(requires PROJ4, it seems); ability to read PNG and TIFF (possibly 
floating-point TIFF; GeoTIFF not required); ability to send PNG, JPEG 
and maybe PNG; ability to read geographic CRS (EPSG:4326).

I think this means Mapserv, PROJ4 and GD are all I need.  If you think 
I'm missing something, let me know!
