Does this mean that other packages that only read gif's can be enabled to do
so, eg graphics/magicpoint will use libungif if told to?
Having said that I notice that there's a USE_GIF variable for setting in
mk.conf, so shouldn't this have used that, and it's also not got a dependancy
on libungif (or whichever gif library it uses)?
