  1. Do not send a bug report if there is no bug! Please read the FAQs and learn what a bug is.
  2. Do not send identical messages a couple of times to many mailing lists.
  3. Do read the installation manuals.
  4. Install both "libpng" and "libpng-devel" in a way that it will be found by R's configure scripts (e.g. into standard locations).
  5. Run R's ./configure and check the last lines of the output, png support should be mentioned, if not, check what ./configure told you at the point where it looked for libpng.
