Hi Stefan,
test, if your gnuplot supports the gif format. 
Start gnuplot and try 'set term'. 

If you have gif support, start octave an try
 gset term gif
 gset output "filename.gif"

 gset term x11   
If you don't have gif support, you can either rebuild gnuplot or 
save your file using the Portable Bitmap Format (*.pbm) and convert
it to gif using the pbmtools.

Octave is not very usefull for animations, but you can create single
pbm images and make a mpeg video using mpeg_encode.
