I haven't looked into this, but maybe the configure scripts look
for the system libpng (in /usr) instead of the libpng in the
Buildroot output dir?

To check that you may try to uninstall libpng from your host and
see if the error gets reproduced.

Or look at the config.log files if Peter can provide them. Peter,
do you still have access to them?
