Why did you think this was an error in R? This is an error from a *system* header file about a missing *system* header file.

It look like on your system libpng-devel has been installed without its dependency zlib-devel. In all the years this has been in R we have never encountered such a system, and RPM management is supposed to prevent it happening (see below).

You can work around this by altering src/include/config.h to not define HAVE_PNG. Please seek help elsewhere about fixing your OS (which is no longer supported by RedHat, of course).

On an FC3 box

gannet% rpm -q --whatprovides /usr/include/png.h
libpng-devel-1.2.8-1.fc3
gannet% rpm -q --whatprovides /usr/include/zlib.h
zlib-devel-1.2.1.2-3.fc3
gannet% rpm -q -R libpng-devel-1.2.8-1.fc3 /bin/sh
libpng = 2:1.2.8
rpmlib(CompressedFileNames) <= 3.0.4-1
rpmlib(PayloadFilesHavePrefix) <= 4.0-1
zlib-devel
^^^^^^^^^^

This is the problem.
