That's because libpng & libxml2 are doing what your patches do, fixing
up the *-config files.
What Samuel said (correct me if i'm wrong) is the developers meeting
kind of agreed on just dropping the *-config files in favour of
pkgconfig-based (*.pc) solutions, and patch wherever necessary.
What i say is let's fix the dreaded *-config files but in a generic way,
just declaring the relevant files to be fixed as the original mail i
replied to you said until we can properly move to a pkgconfig-only
solution, which i think won't be fast or easy.
