And then rebuild all ports that used libungif.

It's not quite that simple. Both install include/gif_lib.h but the
associated libraries have different names. If you have both
installed, the most most recently installed will select which
include/gif_lib.h is used but the library used will depend on the
whims of the port's configuration tools.

It's very unfortunate that the ports depending on libungif weren't all
cleaned up before the conflict was added. The current situation is a
mess and, for many people, requires manual intervention to make the
ports system work.
