Hello Suhaib,

I have rebuilt my Cygwin installation on August 5 with the new setup.exe
which installed Cygwin1.1.4. and I got also the Xfree binaries from July
18 but that gives new problems to run dx from OpenDX Cygwin binaries
downloaded on July 21.

No more problem with libz.dll as with Cygwin1.1.2 (see my previous mail
from July 27 on opendx-users list) but new problem with libpng :

File DXEXEC.EXEC linked to a missing export LIBPNG.DLL: ... (I don't
remember what was following, sorry) ...

Cygwin1.1.4 was delivered with libpng-1.0.8-1 and I had to re-install
libpng-1.0.6-1 in order to get OpenDX working. Everything is now working
fine. Please could you check if there is really a problem with
libpng-1.0.8-1 or did I missed something in my new Cygwin installation ?

I noticed that all Cygwin mirror sites did not have the same packages.
On "" from which I downloaded Cygwin, libpng was only in the
"contrib" directory with 1.0.8 version, not in the "latest" directory.
On the french mirror site, libpng was in the "latest" directory with
1.0.6 version and in the "contrib" directory with the 1.0.6 and 1.0.8
