Sorry for the delay in responding. I meant to implement the new functions
before replying, and then your email dropped down in my queue.

I have implemented the C entry points for the various metadata functions, and
fleshed out the documentation that was missing on metadata functions. I am
attaching gdalmajorobject.cpp which you should be able to drop into a 1.1.5
source distribution to get the changes, or just updated from CVS.

On the gifdataset.cpp problem, this seems to relate to differences between
the functions I use and the version of libungif installed on your system.
For the time being, use --with-gif=internal to use the internal GDAL
copy of libungif. Perhaps I can fix up the configure logic to handle this
better in the future.
