Right.  From what ldd said, it seemed like it was (dynamically) linked
against both lippng12 and 14, which seems odd to me.  Is that a bug?

Anyway, this is the first time I've seen something like this.  My home
machines usually grow very old and get a lot of different versions of
various libraries over the year, but compilation of stuff usually
doesn't fail just because of that.
