Calling "apropos gif" on my system leads to whirlgif:

  whirlgif (1)         - reads a series of GIF87a or GIF89a files, and \
  produces one single GIF89a file composed of those images.

The copyright file states 

  Whirlgif is now located at http://www.danbbs.dk/~dino/whirlgif/.  The
  previous version was at http://www.msg.net/utility/whirlgif/.

I have tried neither whirlgif nor the urls above. I also seem to recall that
imagemagick had a tool for this ...
