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. :-)
