Sorry to dig up an old topic.

So just a quick update on this. I switched to using Debian Unstable ("Sid")
and it does not have libpng14 either. So that would be why Ubnutu doesn't. I
am ok with building myself, but I feel like there are a lot of users that
use Debian based Linux boxes and that seems like it might be worth a switch
back to libpng12. Thoughts?
