glpng is basically dead at this point.

sdlimage/sdl2image is needed to have a window icon.

sdlimage/sdl2image unfortunately lead to some rendering artefacts that I haven't been able to track down yet. There is a bug on

FTGL can only display characters from one font without fallbacks.
If fontconfig is not installed when building chromium-bsu with FTGL,
then you will have to specify a hard-coded path to the desired font.

I'm not familiar with the difference between these libraries TBH,
so that is interesting info. From the chromium-bsu side I'm not
particularly familiar with the audio code, but it looks like openal

In Debian we use sdl2/sdl2image/glc/openal. I would recommend that.
