RE: [ITP] libungif-4.1.0-1

What about
ldesc: "programs to convert GIF images
 These are some programs that use libungif to convert images.
 The libungif library is a specially modified version of giflib which
 is free of the Unisys LZW patent.  It can read all GIFs, but only
 write uncompressed GIFs."
