I don't think that commit is the problem.  It just changes the install step
from "make install-strip" to "make install".  But, I could be wrong...

Yesterday, after I noticed the files on my rootfs, I did a pull of the latest
buildroot git repository so I should be current.

I also just checked my .config and BR2_HAVE_DEVFILES is not selected.

It looks like something in the configure step for libpng is causing the
-config files to be built and installed on the target.  Also, is the old
library (libpng12) needed?  It appears that it can optionally be excluded
