The output is going to stdout as far as I can tell (even if there's an

Never heard of xzgv.  However, there's obviously xv (depending on
whether you like the licence), and the other choice which springs
to mind is "display" (which comes with ImageMagick).

xv doesn't seem to come with Red Hat any more.  Shame, but you can still
get the SRPM from Red Hat 6.2 powertools.

xli has never come with Red Hat, which is even more of a shame.
However, the aforementioned site has an SRPM for xli-1.17 which
does indeed support PNG.
