I think that's right.  It looks to me like ImageMagick and fontconfig are both 
adding -lpng15 to the link command line.  I'm puzzled about fontconfig because 
it was just rebuilt.

$ pkg-config --libs fontconfig
-lfontconfig -lexpat -lfreetype -lbz2 -lz -lpng15 -lm -lz -lexpat -lfreetype 
-lbz2 -lz -lpng16 -lm -lz

Yaakov, can you explain this?
