I would leave the usage line as is, or add a second line with just sng
-V (without the [file...]), as sng -V [file...] is a no-op.

However, we want to use libpng16 nowadays instead of libpng15, and the
similar hack with libpng16's headers indeed does NOT work.  So this is
(a hopefully rare) case where an older libpng is required.  Given the
options, I would prefer to keep libpng12 for this case.  I have uploaded
libpng12 for x86_64, and you'll need a few tweaks to force the build to
use it:

main.c is missing an #include <string.h>.
