Hi folks,
Actually trying to install libwmf.
By running ./configure error when looking for
libpng; error message is:

[...]
checking for xml2-config...
/user/cschmid/local/bin/xml2-config
checking for freetype-config...
/user/cschmid/local/bin/freetype-config
checking for FT_Init_FreeType in -lfreetype... yes
checking for freetype/freetype.h... yes
checking whether it's freetype 2... yes
checking for zlib.h... yes
checking for gzputs in -lz... yes
checking for png.h... yes
checking for png_write_image in -lpng... no
configure: error: * * * unable to find libpng which is
required by libwmf * * *

But the path to the libpng (include/ and lib/) is
correct. Seems that ./configure's unable to find the
function png_write_image...

Thank you very much for your support

Chris

    libpng is not sufficient; you must have libpng-devel too (or
    whatever it's called in your distribution). Do you?
