Wohoo... I love it when I bork something up...  :)

Well libpng was running 1.0.9 which was installed from a Slack 8.0-- (read
7.2) install.  I removed that pacakage and installed the latest version
(1.2.3) from source (using makefile.linux)... updated libs with ldconfig.

Well it seems that it was the version of libpng (1.2.3).  Whatever they
did to the API really screwed things up. libpng 1.0.13 works just fine. 
After compiling both linpng 1.0.13 and 1.2.3 and installing both things
seem to work fine.  Pan can find the versions it needs (both GTK1.2 and
GTK2.0 versions, although GTK2.0 version was super ugly and didn't work
real well)... Gftp has a problem with GTK2.0 (or at least the size of the
drop boxes and scroll bars made it useless).  GTK2.0 probably would work
just fine if everything used it and everything was compiled for it
only.... but for now, I think I'll stick with GTK1.2.

Thanks for help Valdis... next time I guess I should watch those libraries
more closely.
