This one is my doing.  I had to change the giflib API in 5.1.0 because of a
subtle problem the 5.0.0 version produced in connection with dynamic-language
wrappers (the actual bug report was about C# but it could have been
any language with GC).

The bug is noisy but the fix is trivial.  I've asked Fujiwara-san to clean
it up so the image.c code is properlyconditionalized for 5.0.0 or 5.1.0;
once he does that, I'll review the patch, address any problems, and commit it.
