Bug Description

libpng12 provides a png.pc as well, so should use this as a first choice for determining cflags as well

Confirmed, except it seems that the pc module name is libpng

Just had another look at this... We *do* actually check for libpng.pc in PKG_CHECK_MODULES(INKSCAPE, ... libpng >= 1.2 ...)

However, there is a manual check for libpng too. I guess this is redundant. Running a test-build without it.

Fix committed in lp:inkscape r12152. We now just use pkg-config rather than unreliable manual check.
