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.

Don't meddle in the affairs of sysadmins,
