Suggestion: google the error message and png, and read the first
XEmacs is using no longer supported direct access to png structures.
Downgrade your png, or change the code to use the advertised methods.
I did just that, and it was indeed so. In one of the hits I found,
Adrian Kehoe recommended "with-png=no" in ./configure. I did that, and
it now builds. Thanks!
