I was running a spam filtering rule which uses giftext in a perl module 
to process image spam. I could not proceed as I was getting coredump 
messages about giftext. Today I have read another howto on a different 
approach to the setup of the spam filtering, and there I have come 
across information about giftext (from libungif port) and they have a
patch for the crash - 

This patch applies cleanly to libungif.

I am not testing again to see of giftext would still crash.

I am requesting that you take a look at the patch to see if it would 
help us in the port. I am running FreeBSD 6.2-PRE
