If you have installed *patched* libpng at /usr/local/libpng,
1. You can use pkg-config to search patched libpng.
$ env PKG_CONFIG_PATH=/usr/local/libpng/pkgconfig:$PKG_CONFIG_PATH ./configure
2. Or, you can use --with-libpng-include=DIR and --with-libpng-lib=DIR options.
$ ./configure \ --with-libpng-include=/usr/local/libpng/include \ --with-libpng-lib=/usr/local/libpng/lib
After install, maybe you need LD_LIBRARY_PATH to search the runtime library path.
$ env LD_LIBRARY_PATH=/usr/local/libpng/lib gimp
Because same as PNG is handled by PNG plug-in in the GIMP. Please select file type PNG+APNG image.
