installation of libpng in /usr/local/lib or /usr/lib shouldn't matter
for mplayer configure. you should have installed png.h also at an
usual path (/usr/local/include/ or /usr/include). look for it!
if it already isn't, you should add /usr/local/lib to your library-path
and export it in your .bashrc. mine for example looks like:

(you have to logout/in after it!)

add also the path to your ld.so.conf

after installation of libpng or any other library you should do a
ldconfig as root.

for libraries and headers in unusual places you can pass the path to
mplayer while configuring with:

--with-extralibdir=DIR   extra library files (png, SDL, ...) in DIR
--with-extraincdir=DIR   extra headers (png, dvb, mad, sdl, css, ...) in DIR
