Configure error: pngconf.h

    When I run ./configure everything runs ok except this part:

    Checking png.h usability... yes
    Checking png.h presence... yes
    Checking for png.h... yes
    Checking pngconf.h usability... no
    Checking pngconf.h presence... yes
    configure: WARNING: pngconf.h: present but cannot be compiled
    configure: WARNING: pngconf.h: checking for missing prerequisite headers?
    configure: WARNING: pngconf.h: proceeding with the preprocessor's result
    Checking for pngconf.h... yes
    Checking for png_free in -lpng... yes

    Not knowing if this is a serious error or not, I continued on and ran gmake and gmake install.  When it's all over some of the files are installed but not wvWare itself.

    I am running RedHat 9.0 with libpng-1.2.2-16 and libpng-devel-1.2.2-16.  There end up being three png.h and pngconf.h files one each in the following directories: /usr/include, /usr/include/libpng, and /usr/include/libpng12. 

    Any help would be much appreciated.  Thanks!

      I think this error is harmless, though certainly annoying... I really should do something about that.

      I don't really know why wvWare wouldn't be installed.

      Are there any errors at the end of the gmake run?
