                       (Pipe Command "/usr/bin/giftopnm -", Pipe exit
code 1 (""), Temporary file: "/tmp/.spamassassin15619xdABuytmp")

which are all well and good, except that giftopnm is where it should be:
# whereis giftopnm
giftopnm: /usr/bin/giftopnm /usr/share/man/man1/giftopnm.1.gz

It doesn't look like the command its calling is the problem, it looks
as though the switch being used or the way its calling it is the

Notice the - symbol, look around to see if you can remove the
offending switch being "-"
