Why is libgif in /usr/local? If you installed it yourself for some
reason bypassing the normal package manager then have you ever built
anything with it that works?

Does ldd temacs tell you anything interesting? You may want to check
your /etc/ld.so.conf to see where the dynamic linker looks for
libraries. /usr/local isn't always included.
