I am quite sure that this couldn't be the reason for gimp-perl working
again, so either it was some cruft from earlier releases or the big is
still hiding somewhere.

the gimp configure.in checks for libz and disabled png automatically - you
do not happen to have a configure output from the non-working version? ;)

It shouldn't be required ;) Anyway, I forwarded your mail to
gimp-developers, maybe someone spots the obvious thing.

Thanks for testing!
