[Savannah hackers...]

Done as requested.

[For Guile developers...]

I've converted some GIF files in the guile-tk module to PNG as
requested (see cited email below).  I couldn't find anything in
guile-tk that depended on these files being in GIF format; my guess is
that the files were only there as examples for the Tk GIF reader.  If
anyone knows any better, please enlighten.

I couldn't get guile-tk to build; it fails for me in ./configure,
claiming that Guile is not installed on my computer :-) !
