In my tests, libpng 1.5 is a little bit new for a good bit of software. And Debian and Gentoo are both still defaulting to 1.2.x. (libpng 1.2 & 1.4 are "stable" but ABI incompatible; 1.5 is "development") My own inclination would be to just use libpng 1.2, but...sabotage is your project, not mine. The problem I was hitting was constant segfaults whenever I displayed a page with a PNG. >> gpm >> At least one of: >> linux-headers (for fbdev) | SDL | X11 headers | svgalib |directfb >> Extra: >> libjpeg, libtiff (more image formats) >> >> You'll need to specify >> CFLAGS="-D_GNU_SOURCE ..." \ >> /configure --enable-graphics --with-gpm --with-x --with-fb \ >> --x-includes=... --x-libraries=... --with-ssl >> >> to get it to build with GUI.

If I remember right, they somehow took care of most of the dependencies. It looks a little less daunting than some other packages I've seen, but is pretty deep; libsoup, icu, gobject/gir, and GAIL appear to be the main problems (comparing Debian's build-deps to the list of packages in pkgsrc).
