On a testing/unstable system that was updated a couple of days ago, I
adam@kaa:~$ apt-cache rdepends libpng3
Of those, xmovie is in contrib, which may be why Joss didn't include it.
The last uploads of those packages were September 2002, January 2003 and

maintainer activity relating to the packages' bugs since mid 2003.
