libpng 1.5.1 is not supported for R 2.12.2: it will be for 2.13.0. The documentation does say so ...

You need libpng, jpeg and libtiff sources (available, e.g., from http://www.libpng.org/, http://www.ijg.org and ftp://ftp.remotesensing.org/pub/libtiff/). You will need files libpng-1.2.18.tar.gz (including ¡1.4.x¢ but not ¡1.5.x¢), jpegsrc.v6b.tar.gz, tiff-3.8.0.tar.gz (but not ¡4.0.0beta¢) or later.
