Yes, you are confused now :-)

There is a copy of the libpng source code embedded in the doxygen source
package. By default it builds a private copy of libpng and embeds it in
the doxygen binaries. This seemed to me like needless duplication, so I
made it link against the normal (separately packaged) libpng instead.

Suitably clarified?
