Please remove /usr/local/lib/libpng.dylib - it's just a softlink and  
it's causing the problem. The actual binary is libpng.3.dylib and  
using that is safe.

The underlying problem is the forced /usr/local/lib in  
DYLD_LIBRARY_PATH which should be fixed soon (I hope to have some  
time for that next week ...).

Simply remove libpng*dylib - then the static one (libpng.a) will be  
used instead (assuming that you compiled both dynamic and static one  
- which should be the default afair).
