I use mencoder. The following will create an avi movie from all .jpg files in the current directory.

mencoder "mf://*.jpg" -mf fps=25 -o output.avi -ovc lavc -lavcopts vcodec=mpeg4


This should work for .gif as well but have not tried it...

ffmpeg too. Although it can be picky about the source image format. Imagemagick comes in handy for converting it to other input formats. Mainly -depth 8 for me for png's generated by povray. transcode? and others as well.
