bug#15531: Emacs configure fails with gif 5.0

From: Barry Fishman
Subject: bug#15531: Emacs configure fails with gif 5.0
Date: Sat, 05 Oct 2013 11:27:53 -0400
User-agent: Gnus/5.130008 (Ma Gnus v0.8) Emacs/24.3.50 (gnu/linux)

Package: emacs
Version: 24.3.50

The configure script fails to recognize the gif_lib.h header file for
gif 5.0 and so prints an error that git support can not be found.

The gif_lib.h header file has been reorganized for gif 5.0.  There is no
longer a EGifPutExtensionLast function.  However there is a new
GifMakeMapObject I used in my patch.  A better way would probably be to
look at the new GIFLIB_MAJOR define now in gif_lib.h.

I have included a patch, but I do not have many OS/platforms that I
can check.  I am far from understanding autoconfig, but my attempt at a
fix (git patch) is included below:

Attachment: emacs-gif-5.patch
Description: configure and image.c patches
