The signatures of many exported functions were changed, such that

where "rp" indicates a "restricted pointer".

here I see that png_sizeof() is just a #define to sizeof()

so exchanging it with sizeof should just work?

Using sizeof() instead of png_sizeof() should work around that specific issue, but I read through the PNG webpage and there are a lot more changes coming:


And even 1.5 is outdated by now, they have released 1.6 and are working on 1.7. In 1.6 they deprecated png_info_init_3() which means that we need to rewrite the whole png code. We rather should do that change at once. My 1.2.49 version of libpng already has png_create_info_struct(). Are there any older versions still in use that miss that function?


Debian guys...

I would offer the version I have on my sparc box:

png-1.2.24          Library for manipulating PNG images

I don't know if it already has the symbol you mention?

extern PNG_EXPORT(png_infop,png_create_info_struct)

the header is a bit convoluted, but I can see:
#define png_info_init(info_ptr) png_info_init_3(&info_ptr,\

But for now, the small patch I propose should do the job, or? May I commit it? It works for me.. compiles and I can load pngs.
