GIF support back in GD

According to the Changelog, the newest GD module (2.15) now supports GIF again. GIF support had been removed in 2002 due to licensing issues. With every major browser supporting PNG I'm not sure this is such big news, but it's nice to have the option back.

    Yep, the world-wide patents all expired sometime earlier this month. Thanks for reminding me of it! (And thanks to Thomas Boutell for gd!)

[stevieb]: for the first time ever, I will have 100% of the documentation and unit tests written for a new distribution before writing even a single character of the C or Perl code required :)
[hippo]: Congrats. I expect the resulting code to be rock solid. :)
