INSTALL recommends libungif library

The INSTALL file in the CVS trunk still recommends using libungif.
I guess that this library is replaced by giflib on most distros.
Also, the Sourceforge project page for libungif does no longer exist.

While it is o.k. for configure to support both libraries as
alternatives, the INSTALL file should recommend giflib. A patch is
included below.
