Hmmm, I don't agree with you completely. DEPRECATION seems perfectly
correct to me, the port is set deprecated so users and maintainers know
they should switch to the recommended giflib. We can argue on
EXPIRATION_DATE, I imagine that if it's set someone has patches for all
depending ports and they will be committed before that date.
