Alas! Ian Molton spake thus:

How is it libpng that's broken??

The way I understand it, is that xcursorgen is linking against libz (or
zlib or whatever it's called), and libz needs libpng, but isn't linking
against it, so xcursorgen needs to link against libpng in order to
satisfy libz's dependencies.

libpng isn't broken because something else forgot to link against it,
it's the thing that isn't linking against it that's broken.
