Arch and building my own programs

well i like to build a lot of my own programs .Even if they are in the Arch,CentOS,or Fedora repos .

there was a resent update to libpng14 ( and removing libpng12)

Google libpng12 for the reason for that hack

but the upshot is a few things need hacking to build

see the libpng page


so far i have found that gimp-2.6.8 throughs an error

and Celestia svn build

 " png_set_gray_1_2_4_to_8 " needs to be changed to 


but from the Arch forum there seams to be a bunch of things that will need patching

at least this is a easy fix
