And *this* shows the problem with removing libpng14-devel without
warning. It's not just gdk-pixbuf2.0; -lpng14 shows up in a few other
.pc files (all of which are exclusive to Ports) and *numerous* .la
files, and they are now ALL broken because of this change. (Makes me
glad to have ridden my system of most .la files, and is YA temptation to
change the KEEP_LA_FILES default to "none".)
Chuck, for someone who hates flag days with a passion, you have most
ironically forced one upon us without warning. Please rectify that by
restoring libpng14-devel (with 1.4-versioned files only, of course) ASAP.

None; you could just remove it entirely if you wanted.

I hadn't gotten around to the libpng updates yet. Since this is a
bigger issue than just gdk-pixbuf, the solution is to restore
libpng14-devel in the short term.
