Updated: libpng10-1.0.56-1

The libpng packages offer the standard libraries for manipulating
PNG files, a turbo-studly lossless image format.  This is a security
update for the backwards-compatibility 1.0.x version of this library.

This DLL, cygpng10.dll, is now officially obsolete and there will be
no further updates -- not even to resolve security issues.  No application
in the cygwin distribution uses this DLL -- and user applications have
had ten years to adapt to the 1.2.x API (and the 1.4.x API has actually
been available for over 18 months).

[[ compiled using gcc-4.3.4-4 ]]

CHANGES (since 1.0.43-1
o update to latest official release of libpng-1.0.x
o built using gcc4
o still using the non-autotools-driven build process
o updated hint files for new dependencies (libgcc1)
