Two things:

1) I'm *really* tired of the usage of the word "slacking" on this
mailing list. If you or someone else wants to pay me to work on
Gentoo, *then* you can tell me that I'm slacking. Otherwise, I'm a
volunteer working on things that interest me in my free time. I truly
do have more important things to do than to figure out how to port
pngcrush to libpng1.5. Namely, graduate school and midterm exams.

2) What exactly is it that you want me to do here? Upstream is aware
of the problem, and seems to be working on it as there are comments
about libpng15 in pngcrush.c. Hanno kindly stepped in and made
pngcrush use a bundled libpng14 (and at the same time bundled zlib,
which has now been fixed), which you promptly masked. I'm not sure if
the problem is bundled libs in general or specifically zlib, but we
*know* it's distasteful. It's not like that's a preferred or permanent
solution. Do you find that somehow more distasteful than removing a
piece of software from from portage that's been in the tree since
