I'm trying to remake R to use png on solaris.
I've installed the libpng and zlib packages,


and get this from ./configure

checking for png.h... (cached) yes
checking if libpng version >= 1.0.5... yes
checking for png_create_write_struct in -lpng... (cached) no
checking for XDR support... (cached) yes
checking for gzopen in -lz... (cached) yes
checking for zlib.h... (cached) yes
checking if zlib version >= 1.1.3... yes

after make and make check:  capabilities() still reports png FALSE.
I presume the problem is the "no" above, but I'm unclear what to do about it.
Any suggestions would be most welcome...for the record:
