That just means it's "ported", not "portable". For the most part, if it
doesn't use configure (with feature tests, not platform tests) and
libtool, some group of users (which almost always includes me :-) isn't
going to be able to compile it easily.

Of course, neither zlib or png is very complicated. It shouldn't be too
hard to fork them and make them use configure and libtool...
