  - Define make_build for distributions which do not define them in
    system macros
* Mon Dec 12 2022 Dirk Müller <>
  - add reproducible.patch to avoid timestamp patching in the build
    section and allowing it to build with -Werror=date-time
* Thu Apr 15 2021
  - prep section should just extract and patch,
    further modifications have to be done in the build section

  - Changes in version 5.2.0
    * The undocumented and deprecated GifQuantizeBuffer() entry point
      has been moved to the util library to reduce libgif size and attack

      util library or make their own copy.
    * The following obsolete utility programs are no longer installed:
      gifecho, giffilter, gifinto, gifsponge. These were either installed in
      error or have been obsolesced by modern image-transformmation tools
      like ImageMagick convert. They may be removed entirely in a future
