[FWTools] libpng not included in FWTools distribution

We're trying to build MapScript Perl against FWTools but are running
into the problem that our Linux system's libpng is a newer version
(1.2.5) than the one FWTools is compiled against (1.0.12), which ends up
producing the following error messages:
libpng warning: Application was compiled with png.h from libpng-1.0.12
libpng warning: Application is running with png.c from libpng-1.2.5
gd-png: fatal libpng error: Incompatible libpng version in application
Can we request that the relevant png.h file be included in the FWTools
"include" directory so that we can successfully compile MapScript Perl
against FWTools? As it currently operates, the mapscript.so shared
object gets compiled against our system libpng, then calls tools within
FWTools that require the older version--which is causing the above error
messages and preventing us from using MapScript Perl.
Thanks for any help!
