Strange.  I can only suggest stepping with a debugger through
init_png_functions, to see what exactly fails there and why.

I did a binary search of my config and found the culprit. Sorry for the noise!

I had the following hidden away in one of the gazillion config files:

(add-to-list 'dynamic-library-alist '(png "libpng15-15.dll"))

Removing this file fixed PNG support for Emacs 26.

Again, I'm very sorry I didn't think of this any sooner.
