r.in.gif with GIF89a

I recently discovered the r.in.gif command in the src.contrib/SCS/raster
directory of the GRASS4.1 release.  It compiled and worked after a few minor 
tweaks - telling it where to get include files - and is quite a handy little 
thing.  However, it only seems to work with GIF87 files.  

Has anybody managed to use it on GIF89a format files?

I would like to get in touch with the person who wrote it at the SCS, to 
see if they have updated their version.

P.S. I only discovered this code when I was compiling r.in.erdas (this also
worked, but I have not yet got it to do exactly what I want).  Do other GRASS 
users think that the contrib section could be better organised or documented?
