THIS IS AN UGLY HACK.

I repeat.

THIS IS A DIRTY, UGLY, HACK.

Please don't do this. I think the consequences of convincing your system
that libpng3 is really libpng2 is obvious - subtle breakge. If you have
done this, then I will ignore any and every bug report from you, because
it's likely to have been triggered by this hack. Until, of course, you
restore it.
