I built Emacs 24.4.1 on my 64-bit Fedora 19 box with no trouble at
all.  Here's what I've got for PNG and GIF libraries:

    $ yum list installed \*png*\ \*gif\*
        <blather deleted>
    libpng.x86_64                 2:1.5.13-3.fc19                   @updates
    libpng-devel.x86_64           2:1.5.13-3.fc19                   @updates
    giflib.x86_64                 4.1.6-7.fc19                      @anaconda
    giflib-devel.x86_64           4.1.6-7.fc19                      @fedora  

Since I'm still running F19, my packages may not be the same as
yours, though I suspect that only the version numbers will have

When I first ran configure, I didn't have the giflib-devel
package, but it wasn't hard to figure out.  After installing it,
the usual "./configure; make; sudo make install" dance worked
fine.  Note that I didn't have to run configure (or make) as root.
I've _never_ had to do that.  If you do, there's something amiss,
probably in your system library installation.

Anyway, I hope this helps.
