Comment (by randy at linuxfromscratch.org):

 Indeed, there is an issue with the Gimp, who initially blamed the
 libpng author for breaking the API. But as it turns out, the Gimp
 has had code that libpng deprecated 4 years ago, and Gimp CVS is
 already fixed.

 Either way, the fix is trivial, and I'm sending in a patch. So far,
 this is the only thing I can tell that this new version of libpng

 I'll continue testing more packages, but so far I am leaning to
 jumping the fence on this issue, and saying this version would be
 fine for 6.2

 Not sure what is gained though, with this version.
