 There is an Error in the current giflib configure file. Since Linux is a
 case sensitive system, and giflib's configure looks for gl/gl.h (in
 reality, it is GL/gl.h), you have to do some sed trick to get it to work.
 I do
 find . -type f -exec sed -i "s/gl\/gl.h/GL\/gl.h/g" {} \;
 if the giflib source directory just to be sure to catch all the small gl's
 in any sourcefile. Maybe you could add that the the book.
