 You are of course right.

 Yup.  The question still stands... do we really have to recompile the
 pacakges linked against libpng2, too?  I'm not trying to avoid the
 work, I'd just like to know if the while thing can be simplified a bit
 to reduce the chance for trouble.  Here I have 400+ packages which
 depend on libpng2.
