Well, I'm not sure what the current specifics with all your libraries are
but with the recent difficulties with gifs, many free software packages no
longer support the gif file format.  For more info, see
http://www.burnallgifs.org/ .  Libraries such as the gdlib are no longer
available because of the Unysis patent issue.  That means that if you
didn't already have this library, you wont be able to get it now  and that
may cause you to be unable to save gifs.  I don't know if that's the
specific cause of your problem but you may see if you can find a copy of
gdlib and install it (or check to make sure you don't already have it
installed). (Hint, check your redhat distro or the webalizer
website. http://www.mrunix.net/webalizer/download.html)
