Bump of giflib broken OpenJDK (and many other packages I guess)

Although it is more then  nice to have giflib 5  in rawhide, I would encourage you to untag[1]  it from rawhide, and prepare doubled packages in koji to give dependent packages time to rebuilt:

  1) Find a provenpackager / releng member to work on rebuilding all the
     packages quickly (in dep order)

  2) Introduce a libgif4 compat package with the old soname, to satisfy
     deps while the packages are being rebuilt.

Right now any openjdk can not build, because  it need itself to build. And old version still needs giflib4. So the build fail on dependency reolution.
Many other packages will have similar problem, or will even need changes in code.

Please really work around it quickly, as right now whole update proces of java packages is stopped.

Thanx for updating libgif (and thanx for future time to fix it :)
