Most probably because they are emitted during redisplay, and you
cannot have anything displayed in the echo area at redisplay time,
because doing so re-enters redisplay, which will again produce the
same error message, etc., ad nauseam (a.k.a. infloop).

Because Emacs on GNU/Linux doesn't use the kind of machinery it does
on MS-Windows, whereby it will reject 12 if it was compiled against
14.  See w32-win.el:dynamic-library-alist, and in particular how it
consults the variable libpng-version (which is set at compile time).
