This is not only a function of having gnuplot 3.6 (ie a 3.6 beta), but also
of having a gnuplot version with gif support. Due to the legal baggage around
gif and LZW compression, such versions can not be distributed.

All it takes, however, is to get the 'gd' library sources from, compile it and then to compile gnuplot locally. It even
autodetects libgd if the latter is installed in one of the usual places.
