 Yes.  From the NEWS file:

 "Changes to the API require a library major-version bump. Certain
 initialization functions have acquired an integer address argument for
 passing back an error code, in order to avoid thread-unsafe static
 storage. Application code using extension blocks will require minor
 changes. A few functions have been renamed."

 We might want to try giflib-4.2.0.
