As announced before, a few big commits, that touch some thousands ports are being done: png, curl, x11, gnome, kde4. The target ETA is 6-7 April.

The first one was done, update of graphics/png (including a shared lib version bump), with about 5000 ports affected.

We do _NOT_ recommend updating ports until this commits are all done, and the problems are fixed, except if you want to help testing / fixing.

Before reporting failures, please take a look at ports@ list, and…ort=last_built
to find out if the problem hasn’t already been reported or even fixed.

We also have two incremental builds on Pointy to catch the problems.
