I updated libpng and Gnome (gdm) refused to start because it was
looking for libpng.so.5 and I had upgraded to libpng.so.6 .  I create
a softlink to trick Gnome but some icons broke and no longer show up,
particularly those in the taskbars, but those on the Desktop are fine.
This Gnome is installed via binary package so if I re-install it will
probably rewrite my current libpng and break other stuff. The other
option is to compile libpng from source and place only the specific .5
file in the libr directory.

Has anyone else had this problem? I did some searches and nothing
obvious. What do you recommend I do?
