log is: cannot find -lpng12
i have both libpng-1.2.43-r1 and libpng-1.4.2 installed, but i do not
have libpng12.a in my /usr/lib64 directory. and 'pkg-config libpng
--libs' only show '-lpng14'.
This looks to me like a major portage screwup. I see that on my ~amd64
machine I have both versions of libpng, but the 1.2.43-r1 doesn't install
a pkg-config file because 1.4.2 installs one with the same name, and just
as bad, version 1.2.43-r1 removed the libpng12 header files.
For now, I'd suggest just going back to to 1.2.43 if you can -- maybe mask
>1.2.43 in package.mask?
Meanwhile I'm trying to fix firefox so I can read the bug report mentioned
