I have a webrev at:

It introduces a configure option --with-giflib that (similar to the
existing --with-zlib) allows specifying whether the build should use the
system installed giflib or the one bundled with OpenJDK.

I have not tested it extensively yet (just verified that it builds fine
with both configurations), but I will do that over the coming days if
the patch looks (somewhat) acceptable for OpenJDK8.
