libpng 1.0.13 and 1.2.3 are *supposed* to use different .so numbers (I think
so.2 and so.3) so they *should* co-exist quite happily.  Famous last
words - I found out about it when I had a copy of Enlightenment that was
sucking in so.3 (because it had been compiled against the "current") *AND*
had a copy of pulled in *as well* (courtesy of a library that
hadn't been recompiled (imlib I think).  Let me tell you, I don't get
a warm and fuzzy feeling when different versions of the same library show
up in the output of 'ldd' ;)
