It currently doesn't work because the source format of the stock
icons is PNG files.

In fact, it probably never will work without libpng out of CVS, but we
need to fix it so that the conversion of the stock icons from PNG
files is done when making a tarball, so libpng isn't needed when
building from a tarball.

You might want to file a bug report on to this

(Note: building without libpng is only recommended for specialized
applications such as embedded applications. Support for loading
PNG files is a facility that GTK+-based applications should be
able to depend upon.)
