Bug #331: Broken texlive-bin-libre Dependency for libpng15

Author: 5gon12eder
Status: open
Priority: broken
Target version: 

After updating my system today, the _TeX Live_ programs (_pdflatex_, _xelatex_, …) fail to process PNG images due to the (now?) missing library @libpng15.so.15 at .

$ ldd `which xelatex`

I see that _texlive-bin-libre_ was last built on May 8, while _libpng_ was last built on May 7, so I suspect the rebuilt might be related to the _libpng_ update and the current version thus be up-to-date.  I'm somewhat confused why _xelatex_ links against both @libpng15.so.15@ and @libpng16.so.16 at .  Is this normal?

After some reading, I could (for now, I really needed _TeX_ to work again) solve the issue by downloading, building and installing _libpng15_ from _Arch_ AUR alongside with _libpng16_ but I don't think this is the correct way to solve this issue.
