This one seems okay to me. There is one minor discrepancy:
If you run 'libungif-4.1.0-2.sh all' you do NOT get the same -src package...
This is because the mkpatch() procedure will generate a very large patch
which if applied to a pristine source directory will make it unnecessary
to run "aclocal && libtoolize --force" on the post-patched directory.
You should either
1) change mkpatch() to only create a diff between your populated
libungif-4.1.0\CYGWIN-PATCHES directory and an empty
libungif-4.1.0-orig\CYGWIN-PATCHES, and keep the "aclocal && libtoolize
--force" command in conf(), or
2) Lapo runs "aclocal && libtoolize --force" by hand, and then uses
mkpatch to create a gigantic patch that includes not only
libungif-4.1.0\CYGWIN-PATCHES, but also the libtoolization bits.
"aclocal && libtoolize --force" is removed from conf().
Also, it should probably be "aclocal && libtoolize --force --copy &&
automake --gnu --copy --add-missing --force-missing && autoconf" but
that's just me.
P.S. since libungif's configure.in does not have an AC_PREREQ() line,
the wrapper scripts for the autotools choose the -devel- versions by
default. This is good.

This time it uses no patch but a simple "aclocal && libtoolize --force"
in the "conf" phase.
(binary package is bigger because I also included the "doc" subdirectory
in the install, or else people with only binary would have no help on

ldesc: "The libungif package contains a shared library of functions for
loading and saving GIF format image files. The libungif library can
load any GIF file, but it will save GIFs only in uncompressed format

compressed GIF files)."
