I've built (but can't test just yet) a version of firefox3-b3 against
the new libpng. I still don't completely understand the whole Mozilla
build process, but it didn't complain this time when I told it to use
the system png library, so this should be built against Travis' new
library. Let me know if this works and I'll stick it in unstable and
try to get an x86_64 build as well.

Want to see APNG in action? Check out this site,
http://littlesvr.ca/apng/, and scroll down to "Sample images for APNG
0.10". You should see animation once the png library with apng support
is installed (at least with FF3, not sure about FF2).
