Yes, the graphics/gdal port was updated to use giflib.

Looks OK to me.

They install files to the same place, overwriting each other. So whichever
one was installed last would be the one that's really installed. This is
the reason for the addition of the conflict between the two. The good news
is they're very similar, so it didn't cause problems. Nevertheless, it's
still a bad idea for them both to be installed, hence the addition of the
conflict between them.
