On our 10.1 opensuse hosts, an annoying message is printed out at the start of running programs that are part of a MIRIAD install. This appears to be related to an improperly built rpm for libpng that was distributed by many different linux distributions, including opensuse.

### Fatal Error [imfit]:  The object keyword must be set

It does not keep the programs from running, but, I've been wanting to fix this for a while and with a small amount of googling, came to the conclusion that the easiest fix would be to do a custom build of libpng.
