I hadn't thought of that, but if I could do that, it would help me better
understand and work with the ports framework.  But would anybody commit it?

But png-1.5.13 was released upstream some time before the FreeBSD ports
feature freeze.  Yes, I know graphics/png is a dependency of many ports, from
the +REQUIRED_BY file in /var/db/ports/png-1.x.y
