You are correct - it does.  My only concern was the fact that I found those 
multiple copies of libpng and zlib -- and then I shot off my mouth about it 
as if it were an all inclusive problem and setup was moving things from 
contrib to latest.  What I now believe (as I said) is this is an isolated 
scenario more than likely caused by a change in the setup.ini file 
somewhere/sometime involving where these two packages should be (and probably 
were at the time) located.  These are just holdovers (possibly even a screwup 
on my part --?? Nah) from some earlier time.  

My setup is using setup.ini from local and updating as it should when it 
needs to.  I just shot my mouth off too soon - all seems right and sorry for 
the confusion.  :-)
