I'm not using aptitude. I used wajig show-install libgif4.

But wajig show-install imlib11 gives this:

 wajig showinstall imlib11
Reading package lists... Done
Building dependency tree       
Reading state information... Done
The following extra packages will be installed:
  libgif4 libungif4g
The following NEW packages will be installed
The following packages will be upgraded:
  imlib11 libungif4g
2 upgraded, 1 newly installed, 0 to remove and 5 not upgraded.
Inst libungif4g [4.1.4-5] (4.1.6-3 Debian:unstable) []
Inst libgif4 (4.1.6-3 Debian:unstable)
Inst imlib11 [1.9.15-5] (1.9.15-6 Debian:unstable)
Conf libgif4 (4.1.6-3 Debian:unstable)
Conf libungif4g (4.1.6-3 Debian:unstable)
Conf imlib11 (1.9.15-6 Debian:unstable)

That looks as if it should be safe, but I'm not sure.
