I'll upload new libpng and libtiff for mips64el and rebuild some
packages depending on them.  Thus any upgrade done in nearby days will
probably lead to errors when starting programs using them, unless the
old libraries are installed manually.

These commands will make packages depending on old libpng or libtiff
work before they are updated:

cd /
sudo tar xf /var/cache/pacman/pkg/libtiff-3.9.5-1.1-mips64el.pkg.tar.xz \
  usr/lib/libtiff{,xx}.so.3{,.9.5}
sudo tar xf /var/cache/pacman/pkg/libpng-1.4.8-1-mips64el.pkg.tar.xz \
  usr/lib/libpng14.so.14{,.8.0}

with different versions and arch names for i686 or x86_64.

When building packages updating dependencies first will avoid at least
some link errors.

Please don't report bugs for mips64el packages failing due to missing
libraries unless these are build errors (with full logs attached) or the
packages don't have newer versions on i686 or x86_64.
