If you are using Debian, then you need the 'gimp-nonfree' package. Other
distros vary, but likely have a similar package for GIF support. Alernately,
save as PNG (or other convenient format) and use the command-line convert
program tp convert to GIF. It is beastly slow but effective and supports many
options to customize the output. It is part of the ImageMagick package.
