replace this block by 'return 0;' to workaround

This test has been added to avoid builds with an incompatible
environment (header of 1.0.5 and library 1.2.x for instance) which has
been the cause of several bugreports.

Apparently, png_get_libpng_ver() appeared between 1.0.5 and 1.0.12
(latest version) so a workaround is to upgrade (potato is really really
old you know ;) or comment out the test (see above) if you are 100% sure
your build environment is safe.

If you can provide an equivalent test (which tests the header version
_and_ the libpng version) then feel free to send a patch.

Best regards,
