what exactly are you talking about ?  if you install libpng-1.5, you must rebuild all packages that use libpng-1.4.  it isnt a bug if packages already on your system still refer to libpng-1.4 if you havent rebuilt them.

Maybe we could drop .la files for old gdm... but I am not sure :-/

+*gdm-2.20.11-r1 (11 Sep 2011)
+  11 Sep 2011; Pacho Ramos <> +gdm-2.20.11-r1.ebuild:
+  Wait more before assuming Xserver is defunct (bug #378765 by Enrique
+  Domínguez), this change also solves a problem I was suffering for ages where
+  gdm had problems to restart on systems under heavy load. Also drop .la files
+  (bug #362961 by Stéphane Pagnon).
