oh, you've been bitten by the libpng binary incompability bug.

please run :
emerge -C libpng;
emerge libpng

this will make sure you have only one version installed and thus will avoid any
problems in the further upgrade.

then run :

This will list all libary packages that use the old incompatbile libpng version.
now please rebuild them.

After that, you will have to list all binary programs that run on the old
libpng. we dont do that in a single step to avoid linking problems (a program
may depend on libpng only through inheritance on a library, and we want to
reduce the amount of packages to rebuild)


Now, theese programs link directly to libpng, so you will have to rebuild those
as well.

Sorry for all inconvenience with this upgrade :(
