Ouch. I would not recommend this setting. Anyone can alter your script. 
BUT the issue at hand is that your CGI runs as the user that is configured 
in your apache configuration and needs to write out the GIF file 
somewhere. And it can not write it.

So see if apache (the most likely user to run you httpd as) can write to 
the proper directory.
