[ANNOUNCEMENT] Updated: libpng-1.2.12-1, libpng12-1.2.12-1, libpng12-devel-1.2.12-1, libpng10-1.0.20-1, libpng10-devel-1.0.20-1

The libpng packages offer the standard libraries for manipulating PNG
files, a turbo-studly lossless image format.  This is a routine update. 



+ Although upstream is now providing an autotools-driven
  build, the use of libtool results in a DLL with a different
  name (cygpng12-0.dll rather than cygpng12.dll).  To maintain
  compatibility, cygwin's distribution of libpng-1.2.x (and
  libpng-1.0.x) will continue to use the custom-makefile build
  system.  However, when libpng-1.4.x is released, cygwin will then
  begin to use the autotool-driven buildsystem (via cygport) for 
  the 1.4.x series and beyond.

1.2.x series:
+ routine version update
+ switch to cygport build framework

1.0.x series:
+ routine version update
+ switch to cygport build framework
