I've been doing driveby rebuilds for some of these that happen to have
been in a default install on my machine, but we still have a huge pile
of things built against the old libpng in rawhide:

[ajax at f17 cairomm]$ repoquery --whatrequires libpng-compat | wc -l

Does anyone object to me just kicking a mass rebuild for this?  I'll
happily follow up with the list of build failures.
