As a workaround, you can change line 123 of libbase/GnashImageGif.cpp file as follows:

     // Clean up allocated data.
-    DGifCloseFile(_gif);
+    DGifCloseFile(_gif, 0);

Is there a workaround for this in the meantime? I'd really like to compile Gnash for my use, but obviously can't at the moment.

Yes, I think we're not as yet compatible with 5.1.

[fred@fredo-arch ~]$ yaourt -Qi giflib
Name                  : giflib
Version               : 5.1.0-1

So a bug related to giflib 5.1.0 ?

What version of giflib are you building against?

For a few days, gnash building is broken with gcc 4.9.0.

Here is the error log :

  CXX      libgnashbase_la-GnashImageGif.lo

==> ERROR: A failure occurred in build().

Last time I had a full build process was on june 4th. Didn't made another one since that day. So a commit is breaking build process after june 4th.
