This is happening with several packages built after the libpng update.
They build fine but have to be started in SW13.1 with a LD_PRELOAD command.
I've been looking for a solution for my packages, but have not found
one until now.

If I do I'll report back here. If anyone else finds a solution before
me, please share it here :)
