	Hmm - the 'make update' in png also rebuilt imglib, so I _should_
	have been OK on that front?
	As an added bonus rebuilding gnome-libs has made the gnome_segv
	program work so I can see that gnumeric is getting a segv, but
	leaves me no closer to a working gnumeric.

	I'm probably going to have to delete and rebuild all packages on a
	non production box to see if its upgrade related or a problem with
	a change in a package.
