Re: Bug#127252: -unstable compiled against the wrong libpng

This issue is fixed in kmerlin_0.3.1-5_i386, which has been uploaded.

Btw, this appears to be a major backwards incompatibily problem
between libpng2 -> 3 which effects lots and lots of packages.
The solution is rather simple, requiring recompilation to
get the correct linkage to libpng3, but it would of been nice to
see some dicussion on debian-devel before the upload of
libpng3 to unstable 'broke' all our pacakges.
