As far as I could tell the last time I looked at RedHat they have
already switched to using libpng12 for most things. For example imlib,
I haven't looked at their gnome but with imlib using libpng12 it would
seem it would have to be using libpng12 as well. So unless I am mistaken
we are only maintaining binary-compatibility with old versions of Debian
not other distributions (or at least not RedHat).
