Package: libpng16-16
Followup-For: Bug #823991

Hi Daniel,

can you provide more information, like the package version of your installed
wine?  Did you mix stable and other suites? What are the libpng pacakges you
have installed?

(We have binNMUed everything depending on libpng12 so it is strange that your
wine thinks it is compiled against libpng12)

libpng has this version warning for a reason, as until version 1.4 it was possible to
directly access struct members, therefore if those structs changed this *could*
cause incompatiblities. The newer API forbids that, so this should be safe.

However, taking a (very) short glimpse at the wine packages: Maybe I missed it
but it seems from there that they do not declare a Depends on the libpng
library package.
That could be an explanation why it has not been binNMUed, and this would be
actually a bug in wine (policy 3.5)

CC'ing wine maintainers, maybe they can tell ...
