Hm... I just fixed one problem and it seems to build now.  Let me look at this
again when I have a little more time - maybe I can finally update it.

ATM this won't build with libpng16.  The source was only patched last year for
libpng15, and not by the main author.  I can't remember now where the patches
came from - it wasn't me - but I'll see what I can find out.

If you want to look at the build, here are the cygport and patch files:

wget \ \ \ \ \

And the following files, taken from libpng15 I believe, have to be copied into
the root of the build tree:

wget \ \ \ \

Don't ask me why, I don't remember and the patches were someone else's.  It

ATM the build is failing with:

-I/home/andrex/dev/cygwin/sng/sng-1.0.6-2.x86_64/src/sng-1.0.6     -ggdb -O2
-pipe -Wimplicit-function-declaration
-MT sngd.o -MD -MP -MF .deps/sngd.Tpo -c -o sngd.o
/home/andrex/dev/cygwin/sng/sng-1.0.6-2.x86_64/src/sng-1.0.6/main.c: In function
warning: implicit declaration of function ?strlen?
     vsprintf(buf + strlen(buf), fmt, ap);
warning: incompatible implicit declaration of built-in function ?strlen?

which seems like a trivial problem, but I haven't conquered it yet.
